This summer my husband, 2 kids, my mom and my nephew, and I went to Newfoundland to visit family. We focused on the Deer Lake/Corner Brook region, Gros Morne and the Northern Peninsula as this is where our respective families are from.
We had some things on our list that we wanted to do and we managed to do most with the exception of one. The first thing we checked of is trout fishing; we first purchased a recreational licence and put all the family members on it. As we had brought our fishing rods all we had to do was find a pond or brook and this was easy! Ponds and brooks are plentiful in Newfoundland and are pristine and usually you are the only ones there. The kids loved it even though only one very tiny trout and 2 fresh water clams were caught. Just remember bring a change of clothes and some towels if travelling with kids as it usually ends up with a swim or a splash in the water.
Next we went zip lining over Steady Brook Falls near Marble Mountain, the ski hill near Corner Brook. The kids loved the adrenaline rush and the view while zip lining over the falls was amazing!!
