Travel all over the world to find great adventures and find them you will! But you really don’t need to travel very far to have fun and the thrill of a lifetime. No matter what the season, Newfoundland is jam- packed with great thrilling and entertaining things to do. Explore and photograph Newfoundland’s magnificent landscape and coastline, seek out exciting recreational activities, hike the many trails, canoe/kayak the great rivers and lakes, take in the vibrant arts community, be exhilarated as you climb like a spider and seek new heights to witness spectacular scenery. If lacking in time, choose the western part of Newfoundland where you can enjoy Marble Mountain Resort and Gros Morne adventures.
Marble Mountain Resort is located in the town of Steady Brook about 7 kms from Corner Brook. With its abundance of snow most winters, an average of 16 feet, Marble Mountain Resort offers some of the best snow filled activities in Newfoundland. Enjoy downhill skiing, snowboarding and even winter hiking around the mountain. At the end of the ski season, become a spectator or a participant in the uphill snowmobile races where racers from all over the province meet at Marble Mountain Resort.
While at the resort, if you are looking for another thrilling experience, one that will get the blood racing in your veins, go ziplining where you will soar about 280 ft. over Steady Brook Falls. From spring to fall, make your way to Marble Mountain Resort and complete the Spider Challenge where you will walk on swaying bridges, hold onto moving ropes, step on tires swinging in vertical and horizontal positions, stand and rest on short peg footholds projecting from vertically hanging poles. When you reach the top, approximately fifty feet in the air, you will witness a breathtaking spectacle, the Humber Valley!
For more fun and relaxation, plan to include Gros Morne adventures in your holiday. Less than a two hour drive from Marble Mountain Resort, come to Gros Morne National Park for thrilling adventures or easy relaxing adventures such as cultural attractions, beaches, museums and restaurants. Known for its geological wonder, Gros Morne National Park is the second largest National Park in eastern Canada and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In summer, Gros Morne adventures include exploring the natural and visual wonder of a fascinating landscape. Hiking opportunities are numerous and will take you to sites of stunning panoramic scenery.
