For the past few years I have had the privilege of meeting travelers, from many countries, who have come to Newfoundland Labrador to discover the island by RV. We have had visitors from Israel, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Australia, Holland, Germany, The United States and from every Canadian province.
They come here not for the beaches or the warm weather but as one couple said, “to see nature”. They comment on the rugged coast lines, the scenery, the marine life, the history and the friendliness of our people.
“It’s a photographer’s delight” as one couple commented on their visit. One honeymoon couple were delighted to come upon a moose cow and calf as they were walking on one of the many trails. The momma moose just looked at them as if they expected people to drop by to take photos.
Most of our customers leave St John’s and head for Gros Morne national Park, with a stop in Clarenville to buy groceries. Those who stay on the Avalon usually stay at Pippy Park Camp Ground for their first night. The direction they take is determined by flight arrival times.
Unfortunately there was a group of three men who came to go salmon fishing but they had made no prior arrangements for licences or a guide. Their trip did not go as well as they had expected. I was very surprised they they had not done any research and had not pre-booked a fishing guide. Non-Resident Fishing Info
