Things to Do
Great Day Hiking
Corner Brook Stream Trail offers great views, is well maintained, and offers easy access from almost anywhere in town.
Three things that really stood out were: the boat trip on the Western Brook Pond inland fjords, touring the Viking settlement and Whale-watching. Of course, just driving around was a pleasure in itself because of the scenery. We saw 6 Moose during our day trips - keep off...

Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Conference: Long Term Room
I stayed a month at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. It offers daily, weekly, and monthly accomodation for non-students during the summer. It is great budget base to experience a beautiful part of the world. I spent $360 for the month during the summer of 2007. The college sits...
Viking Village: Viking Settlement
We arranged all our B&Bs via telephone or internet after viewing them on the computer. All were very satisfactory and it was nice to talk to the locals. The prices were very reasonable and the hosts were more than willing to discuss the pros and cons of various plans that we...

Car Ferry From Nova Scotia
It is a long drive just to get to the northern tip of Nova Scotia at North Sydney. We stayed there at a B&B before catching the Marine Atlantic ferry across to Port aux Basques in the morning. This is a 6 hour trip for about Can. $110 (car and 2 people) each way - comes with entertainment and walking on deck or sitting inside.
The highway system in Newfoundland exceeded my expectations. It is a divided 4-lane highway all the way from Port aux Basques to the turn-off to Gros Morne. From there the highway all the way to St. Anthony's at the northern tip is all first class (2-lane).

As I've seen mentioned here...
As I've seen mentioned here already, moose at night are very very dangerous, and accidents with them range from minor bumps where moose actually run into the vehicles(I've actually witnessed this), to full collisions where the animal can smash a windsheild, and its legs...
Moose vs. Car !
Newfoundland is full of big Moose - 127,000 of them at last count. You will see the occasional one along the highway through the daytime but they are out in force at night - on the highways too. They are dark (hard to see) and heavy when they fall onto your windshield and...
This is just a short note on...
This is just a short note on the caves of Corner Brook. There are some small ones located in a couple different places on the outskirts of Corner Brook. This may be interesting to you sperlunkers out there. I will add more info and pics, along with GPS position on the cave, as soon as I go back to them. They are deep enough for at least a 10 or 15 minute walk down into the earth. The last time(2001) I was into them though, the end was jammed up with logs, so I couldn't continue on to the end.

Corner Brook View
Favorite thing: We did not spend much time in Corner Brook but did notice that it has a very picturesque setting in the Humber River with high hills surrounding it. After doing a bit of shopping in town and getting some films developed, we drove up to this very scenic spot in the hills overlooking the city. Corner Brook is the largest settlement on the west coast of Newfoundland, with a large pulp&paper mill as it's economic mainstay.
Fondest memory: All of the people we met in Newfoundland were extremely friendly - we were even chastised for locking our car!
