There is a lot of gorgeous landscape around Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. Much of the sculpting was performed by glaciers in the most recent ice ages. One of the most spectacular places is the valley that holds a lake called Western Brook Pond. This valley used to be a real fjord and was open to the sea. But within the last few thousand years, the rebounding land rose and cut the valley off from the sea. The salt water was flushed out and eventually replaced with some of the purest water to be found. We had heard and read that the boat tours in this place should not be missed! But rainy weather caused us to postpone visiting Western Brook Pond until we came back down through Newfoundland after visiting Labrador. This time we were rewarded with a nice, mostly sunny day.
This is definitely a place not to be missed if visiting the area. Just be prepared to hike in and back out. Also buy your tickets ahead of time in the town of Rocky Harbor or take cash, because they don't take charge cards at the boat dock! Reservations are highly recommended because this is a very popular tour and it is a long hike to get to the boat and find it is full!
