Today there is a modern bridge crossing the North West River and making transportation very easy in the area.
I just mention this because on your visit to North West River you will often hear people talk about the "cable car" that was one time used to transport people and goods across the river.
It is a unique part of the North West River history.
From Happy Valley - Goose Bay to North West River the paved highway is 33 kilometers.
This is a very short drive and very scenic the entire route.
Just take your time on the road as moose are common and you want your trip to be a safe one.
