Day 7 Rocky Harbour–Grand Falls–Gander

Depart for Grand Falls-Windsor with a stop at the SALMONID INTERPRETATION CENTRE, one of North America’s largest Atlantic salmon enhancement projects.

Day 8 Gander–Twillingate–Terra Nova National Park–Port Blandford

Along the “Road to the Isles,” the local predilection for colorful language comes across with place names such as “Too Good Arm,” “Virgin Arm,” and “Crow Head.” On the way to Twillingate, visit the PRIME BERTH FISHING MUSEUM and see the Long Point Lighthouse. With luck, you might spot whales along the coast en route to TERRA NOVA NATIONAL PARK. (B,D)
