In Newfoundland’s Gros Morne National Park you can visit Western Brook Pond – one of the purest lakes in the world!

Newfoundland Pure LakeFrom the parking log parking lot of Western Brook Pond boat tour. It’s a 2.5 km walk to the dock, on a cleared trail and wooden boardwalk through squishy bog. This was one of the beautiful views from the path of our destination – the glacial carved mountains of Gros Morne National Park.

Parks Canada displays at the dock tout Western Brook Pond It’s about 10 km long and 1 km wide, and only two motor boats are ever on it (the tour boats), then it’s just kayaks and canoes.  It was once a fijord, and ancient whale bones have been found, but today the access to the sea no longer exists and it’s very deep and filled with fresh water. Two thousand-foot cliffs tower over tour passengers, waterfalls cascade pure spring water hundreds of feet. The wildlife you might see in the area could include eagles, moose and bear.
