Gros Morne National Park of Canada was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It is an area of amazing natural beauty with a broad variety of scenery, wildlife, and recreational activities. Visitors can hike through wild, uninhabited mountains and camp by the sea. Boat tours bring visitors under the towering cliffs of a freshwater fjord carved out by glaciers. Waterfalls, marine inlets, sea stacks, sandy beaches, and colourful nearby fishing villages complete the phenomenal natural and cultural surroundings of Gros Morne National Park of Canada.
Gros Morne National Park surrounds seven small Newfoundland coastal communities. These communities began around the early 1800Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s as migratory fishermen and their families decided to over winter in this area after the fishing season rather than returning to their homes in other regions of Newfoundland, France and England.
