The spectacular Long Range
Mountains, land-locked fjords,
rocks and mysterious Tablelands
of Gros Morne National Park not only bestow the
land with incredible beauty, but reveal secrets
of the major stages of the earth's evolutionary
history and are an essential part of the reason
the park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage
Caribou can be seen in summer at higher elevations,
and the Moose
population, non-native to Newfoundland, has exploded!
settlement on these shores did not occur until
the turn of the 19th century, archaeological
evidence has provided a record of human history
that goes back 3500 years.
