    • Suggestions on itineary in the Western province/Gros Morne national park

      Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Apr 3, 2014 at 1:13 PM

      Hi there,

      I will be spending 6 days in the western province, mainly to visit Gros Morne National Park. I believe 6 days will be more than enough and was wondering if there are sites worthwhile driving to or visiting outside of the park (i.e. driving north)? Any input would much be appreciated!

    • Car rental in newfoundland for 10 days

      Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Apr 3, 2014 at 1:06 PM

      Hi there,

      I am travelling with my boyfriend to Newfoundland in mid June for for 10 days. We will be spending 4 days in St Johns and then flying to Deer Lake to hit the western side of the provide for the last 6 days. I've called a few car rental dealers for quotes and it seems that it can get quite pricey especially if requesting for unlimited milege. They quoted me $550 for 10 days, not yet including insurance. I was wondering if any one out there knows of a budget car rental dealer and whether unlimited milege is even required given that I will be flying from the eastern side of the province into the western side. Any advice/feedback would much be appreciated.

      Thanks so much!

      We have some time off at the end of September and are considering renting an RV and driving around Newfoundland. I did a quick check and many sites seem to close around mid-September. Is the end of September a good time to visit or should we wait until next year? We've never been to Newfoundland so we want to make the most of this first visit!

Would love some ideas on how to get around and spend time from 8AM to 6PM. We would love to see Gros Morne but the cruise ship charges $179pp.

      St John's? Newfienland??

      St. John's Jul 25, 2011 at 9:41 PM

      I have never thot of going all the way to NF from Edmonton, thinking all the time that I should do the Canadian Rockies while I am here! But today when googling for something more unusual i.e.visiting Northern Canada and the original Canadians, I came across a fantastic website: adventurecanada.com/pdfs/201... which featured Newfoundland as one of its destinations!

      So, now, I'm wondering whether I should fly all the way across Canada to St John's after all, to meet up with my dear friend and her lovely boys?? And, perhaps, even join them for a vacation in PEI where Judy has booked a cottage?? I really didn't plan to fly across Canada to go to the Maritimes since I had seen much of Eastern Canada (cities mostly) when I was in Ottawa for 10 months in 1989. And Judy comes to Malaysia now and then for business, so I can always meet her there, again.

      So, what would you recommend? Jasper and the vicinity (after Banff turned out to be much ado about nothing to me?) or visit my Newfie friend and see NFL and even PEI instead? Would these locations pose a very different experience for me than say, the west coast of Scotland or Scandinavia/Lapland?

    • concert passes

      St. John's Jul 6, 2011 at 1:34 AM

      I posted this on Halifax forum, too. My girlfriend is a huge Reba McEntire fan and she's got the tickets for Reba's concerts on Sept.29 and 30.
      I'd love to surprise her with backstage passes for our anniversary because I know she'd love to meet Reba, but I don't know where to look for them. I'm willing to pay, of course, and I know there are about a dozen passes given away for every concert, but I need your help as to where I could get them? Do radio stations maybe give them in a competition, or should I look at the venue? Any help would be appreciated, it would be a great gift for our 3rd anniversary :).

      Thanks!

      Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Mar 28, 2011 at 4:19 AM

      My husband and I (along with our golden retriever) are planning on camping in Newfoundland this summer (the month of July). This will be our first visit to this lovely land and need lots of advise as to the best provincial parks to plant our tent! I received the guide in the mail but it means very little to us since we are not familiar with the parks themselves or any wonderful small towns to visit. We look forward to any advise any can give us!

      1 night Fogo Island
      1 night Twillingate
      big drive up to St. Anthony's/L'Anse aux Meadows for 2 nights
