*Scheduled pick up times are arranged in advance and must be adhered to; lateness may result in a missed shuttle.
The world renowned Tablelands and the towering cliffs of North Arm Mountain provide the perfect backdrop during our exciting 60 minute boat ride. Our Backcountry Shuttle provides adventures access to remote boat access only areas of the Tablelands and Gros Morne’s newest hiking trail, the Overfalls Trail. This area is teaming with wildlife. Caribou, moose, bear and arctic hare all call this section of the park home and are often seen while exploring the area.

Cool off after your hike with a refreshing swim in the crystal clear spring fed river found hidden amongst the forest. Discover the night sky and see stars you didn't even know existed as you spend the night in this special part of the park.

As you’ve already heard, Newfoundland weather can be unpredictable and conditions can vary greatly throughout the day. Even in the hottest months of summer Newfoundland can be quite cool. We suggest guests check the weather and dress for it. Having a day pack with water and a snack, a rain/waterproof jacket, semi-warm sweater and comfortable sturdy footwear suitable for both hiking and our exciting open boat adventure is recommended.
