Corner Brook City Tour
This tour winds through the city streets of Corner Brook to a scenic overlook called Captain Cook's Lookout. This lookout celebrates Cook's 1767 trip to the Bay of Islands and also offers a spectacular view not only of Corner Brook but also of the cruise ship dock and Humber Arm. The city tour can also include the Corner Brook Museum & Archives with its outstanding display of old maps and memorabilia from Corner Brook's logging and fishing heritage.
Another popular tour stop is the Historic Train Site which features the Newfie Bullet Engine and several cars from the days of Newfoundland's narrow gauge railroad.
Passengers will enjoy a stop at the site of the Old Man in the Mountain. The features of the old man are easily visible in the rock and according to local legend he guards the pirate treasure buried on Shellbird Island directly below in the rapids of the Humber River. In nearby Steady Brook, visitors enjoy a stop at Marble Mountain Ski Resort and the Heritage Tree which is 52 feet tall. The tree has over 50 hand carved scenes representing over 1000 years of Newfoundland history and culture.
Captain Cook's Trail
Captain Cook's trail is a journey through history offering the visitor a spectacular view of the mountains, islands and the bay that Cook explored and charted in 1767. The Trail travels the South Shore of the Bay of Islands through mountains and fishing communities to the salty waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The picturesque fishing villages of Bottle Cove and Little Port offer visitors a glimpse of the traditional lifestyle of Newfoundlanders who for centuries lived from the land and the sea in a harsh, but unforgettable place unlike any other. Bottle Cove is a fantastic place to view the rugged coast along this section of Western Newfoundland. At low tide you can walk to a naturally carved "sea cave" on the south side of the cove. The tour frequently features Newfoundland music, crafts and a special "mug-up" featuring Newfoundland berries, baked goods and desserts to ensure passengers have the opportunity to experience the local culture.
Gros Morne National Park
Gros Morne National Park is the largest national park in the Atlantic region and is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its distinctive geological features and spectacular scenery. The reddish orange Tablelands, once beneath the ancient lapetus ocean, were thrust upwards during a continental collision millions of years ago. This ancient event left the earth's crust and upper mantle exposed - one of the only places on earth you can actually walk on the earth's mantle. The high iron content of the rock here is toxic to most plants, and results in a barren reddish landscape suggestive of the moon. A tour of this part of Gros Morne includes quaint fishing villages and Bonne Bay, a scenic glacially carved fjord.
