Head east to experience the best of western Newfoundland with flights from Montréal to Stephenville.
Stephenville is a coastal town, with paths leading to mountains, forests, and waterfalls, some within minutes of the downtown area. Tucked away on the shores of Bay St. George, your flight from Montréal to Stephenville brings you to western Newfoundland’s jumping off point for amazing outdoor adventures.
After your flight from Montréal to Stephenville touches ground, follow the Walk-A-Ways Trail network and pick your path on the 14.5 km paved or gravel trails to see some of Stephenville’s best sights. Breeze past the popular Harmon Seaside Links Golf Course along the Seaside Stroll Trail, or walk amongst wood turned stone in the fossil beds of Blanche Brook Trail.
Stephenville’s geological features also include the Cabox. Standing at 814 metres, this section of the Lewis Hills Trail is the highest peak on the island of Newfoundland. Part of the Long Range Mountains, this 1.2-billion-year-old mountain offers a great view and a new perspective on Newfoundland’s past when you fly from Montréal to Stephenville.
Travel across more of the Long Range Mountains in Stephenville’s two nearby provincial parks. Barachois Pond and Gros Morne both feature stunning segments of the Appalachian Mountains Trail, another provincial perk of Newfoundland’s geography.
Get a feel for Stephenville’s character with a visit to the Stephenville Museum. You can also take in the local culture by stopping in at the Stephenville Theatre Festival, held every summer. When the festival isn’t on, the show goes on at Stephenville’s Arts and Culture Centre.
With plenty of culture and scenic landscapes, western Newfoundland is ready to be explored when you book flights from Montréal to Stephenville.
Head two hours north of Stephenville to meet the mysterious peaks of Blow Me Down Mountains when your flight from Montréal to Stephenville lands.
The story behind the name of the Blow Me Down Mountains is as strange as the mountains are striking. According to local lore, Captain Messervey, anchored in the bay below the mountains looked up at their looming peaks and exclaimed: “I hope they don’t blow-me-down!”
These mountains rise ominously from the peninsula, standing 650 metres above sea level. Head to the summit of the monstrous mountains with a hike along the Blow Me Down Mountain Trail. This 16 km trek will take you to a peak scarred by deep valleys and sheer cliffs. For an easier path, step onto the Governor’s Staircase. 450-million-year-old volcanic rocks, cut with quartz veins, frame this picturesque walk.
Get a lay of the park’s land by making your way up to the observation tower. Take a peek at Blow Me Down’s smaller neighbour’s, Murray and Tortoise Mountains. Pointing your gaze further out, you’ll spot more than a dozen islands that populate the crowded Bay of Islands when you fly from Montréal to Stephenville.
For a familiar look, try to catch a glimpse of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Fed by the St. Lawrence River, these waters pass by Montréal on the way to Newfoundland.
If you choose to stay the night in the park, take your pick of 28 sites in the shadow of the Blow Me Down Mountains, to rest up for the next day of adventures when you book your flight from Montréal to Stephenville.
Just a stone’s throw away from the city, Barachois Pond Provincial Park can’t be skipped when you fly from Montréal to Stephenville.
With lakes, trails, and mountains for swimming, hiking, and climbing, taking the 30 minute drive when your flight from Montréal to Stephenville lands is well worth the journey to arrive in scenic Barachois Pond.
To start with an easy slope, take a hike along the Erin Mountain Trail. The lower section of this scenic trail takes you along the boardwalk path, requiring little exertion to take in views of beautiful bogs and moseying moose from the lookout. For a more challenging trek, venture up over 300 metres to the upper trail. From the vantage point at the top, gaze out at the Gulf of St. Lawrence and St. George’s Bay.
The mountains within the park constitute the most northern section of the Appalachian Mountain Chain. Be sure to pack your camera on your flight from Montréal to Stephenville. You’ll want to snap plenty of photos on your hike along the Long Range Mountains, where stunning scenery awaits.
When all the hiking has you tuckered out, rest your tired legs at one of Barachois Pond Provincial Park’s 150 campsites. With Newfoundland’s incredible night sky, your flight from Montréal to Stephenville provides a beautiful view to fall asleep to. You may find it hard not to stay up and gaze toward the stars all night.
