Discover the beauty of nature in Newfoundland with flights from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Tucked away on the west coast of Newfoundland, Stephenville is nestled amongst lakes, rivers, mountains, and forests. Overlooking Bay St. George, the landscapes around Stephenville are never short of amazing.
Start your trip by introducing yourself to Newfoundland’s great outdoors on the Stephenville hiking trails, located just minutes from the city centre. Get ready to lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails when you fly from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Outside the city, you can trek along the Long Range Mountains. Both Gros Morne National Park and Barachois Provincial Park have access to this northernmost section of the Appalachian Mountain Chain. With hiking, cycling, and kayaking available in the parks, you’re sure to work up a sweat when you fly from Ottawa to Stephenville.
After all the outdoor time in the Long Range Mountains, grab a slice at Domino Pizza House. Not to be confused with the American chain, this Domino has been a Stephenville institution for over 50 years, and will surely satisfy your hunger.
Entertainment is easy to find on summer evenings in the city with a visit to the Stephenville Theatre Festival. This month-long festival puts the city’s arts scene centre stage.
Enjoy the best of the outdoors and the arts in the east, when you book flights from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Hike through the stunning sights of Gros Morne National Park with flights from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Over a billion years old and 650 metres high, the cliffs of the Western Brook Gorge are a staggering sight. Take a boat tour to get up close and personal to these ancient giants. Gaze up from the boat to see streaming waterfalls pouring into the lake below. Experiencing the stomach-dropping depths of the Gorge is well worth a flight from Ottawa to Stephenville.
On Snug Harbour Trail, one of the most difficult hiking trails in the park, you can get even closer to the cliffs. If you’re looking for an easier path with an equally amazing view, take the Tablelands Trail. You’ll make your way across the earth’s exposed mantle, while stark mountains rise up on either side of this path.
To learn more about this meeting point of two primaeval continents, take one of the guided tours. Guided tours in Gros Morne National Park can also take you to Lobster Cove Head. The historic Lobster Cove Head lighthouse dates back to the early 1900s and marks one of the park’s best whale-watching spots.
When you’re ready to call it a night, make your way over to one of the park’s camping grounds. There’s plenty of places to stake your tent and gaze up at the stars. If tent set-up isn’t for you, try the oTENTik cabin hybrids. Hotels are also options in one of the nearby villages of Cow Head or Rocky Harbour if you’d prefer the great indoors.
Wherever you choose to sleep for the night, rest up for another day of fun in Gros Morne National Park when you fly from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Discover Canada’s most easterly National Park, Terra Nova, when you book flights from Ottawa to Stephenville.
Meaning “new land” in Latin, Terra Nova’s 200 km of shoreline leads into swaths of forests filled with fragrant balsam fir and black spruce. Whether you explore the shore or wander through the woods, Terra Nova is your path into the heart of Newfoundland’s natural beauty when you fly from Ottawa to Stephenville.
With over 100 km of hiking trails running through Terra Nova, there’s trails for both the expert hiker and beginners. Experienced hikers can test their skills by taking on the steep trek of the 11-hour Outport Trail to get the most out of the park. The short Sandy Pond Trail measures in at only 3 km, and is perfect for everyone. With access to Sandy Pond throughout the trail, there’s no need to wait to the end of this hike to reward yourself with a swim.
If you’re looking for one of the best views in the park, follow the Ochre Hill Trail. The trail rewards visitors with a panoramic view of the park, so make sure to pack a pair of binoculars on your flight from Ottawa to Stephenville. Survey Terra Nova from this 215-metre summit, where you may just spot eagles flying by, and moose wandering below.
Down at sea level, there’s plenty to see along Terra Nova’s shoreline. Kayak past seal pups as distant icebergs drift past. With bald eagles above and whales below, it’s easy to get distracted from your paddling.
At the Newman Sound campsite, find your spot to sleep under the stars and prepare for a new day of adventures when you book flights from Ottawa to Stephenville.
