Discover The Heart

of Gros Morne

Founded in 2017, Out East Adventures offers a range of services including B&B and hostel style accommodation, guided adventure tours, gear rentals and a trail shop. Our main office is located in the town of Rocky Harbour, while our B&B is a short drive away in Norris Point. We operate inside Gros Morne National Park on the west coast of Newfoundland.


Gros Morne National Park is a world renowned UNESCO heritage site, showcasing stunning natural beauty and unique geological formations. Shaped by glaciers and continental collision, the landscape is as diverse as they come, with towering fjords rising above sandy beaches and moose filled bogs giving way to thick boreal forest, sea stacks rising out of the ocean and highland alpine tundra atop the mountains. 


If you are looking for an active holiday in one of the most beautiful places in the world, then look no further!

In fact National Geographic® has listed the Long Range Traverse, located inside the national park, as one of the best hikes in the world.



Long Range Traverse

An expedition through a land as pristine as it is remote.



Out East Adventures REVIEWS

“The brochure explicitly says that this is a tough hike and it ain't a walk in the park... But man, was it worth it!
