Thanks Erik.
Just asking as may be heading over Ontario/Eastern Provinces in 2009.And hiring a vehicle to get around could be the way to go.

I am planning a trip to NL right now. I'll stay mostly on the Avalon peninsula, but will try to make it as far as Terra Nova national park. The costs add up really fast though!

Regarding places to stay, if I am going in June (possibly alone or with my wife) is it entirely necessary to have reservations everywhere? Also can you recommend how to sleep on the cheap. Its seems outside of St John's there are mostly only B&B's and such and they are all $65-$100 per night. It adds up really fast!

Thanks in advance

I am originally from the West Coast of Newfoundland. My husband is from the Northern Penninsula. I have spent a lot of time travelling the entire island.

Western Newfoundland is absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend putting it at the top of your list. You can see icebergs, kayak, hike, zip-line, and so much more.

For some recommendations:

- Western Brook Boat Tours http://www.bontours.ca/
- Lanse-aux-Meadows http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/4
- Zip lining http://www.marbleziptours.com
- Hike Gros Morne (16 km return) http://www.grosmorne.com/

- Kayaking http://www.explorenewfoundland.com/ and http://www.grosmorneadventures.com

Be sure to stay in Rocky Harbor if you're doing Gros Morne Park. Rent a little cabin in the bay where you can cook for yourself and save a few dollars. Book a boat tour of Western Brooke Pond: an inland fjord with waterfalls. With our ticket we also got free admission to "The Shores of Newfoundland" , a traditional style Newfoundland band full of local humor.

Enjoy your trip!!
