Where would you spend time

Hi All, we have a wedding in the greens bay area in Mid june and then have 6 days before we fly back to the UK.

My question is should we spend our time in and around bonavista and trinity area or should we go to gros morne (looks incredible but is it too far - I doubt we will be back in newfoundland so is it too good to miss)?

If we stay in bonavista/trinity area would you spend all 6 days here or maybe have a couple of days in twillingate also? ( ive read this is 3.5 hours drive away)

please advise :)

The Green Bay Area is closer to Gros Morne than to the Trinity/Bonavista area. Where are you flying from? That might make a difference for you as Deer Lake airport is the closest to Gros Morne but St. John's is 700 km away from Gros Morne and will take you 7 or so hours of driving. Further recommendations really depend on which airport is your departure point.

Aah. Makes a big difference and also more sense now! You only have 6 days and if you go to Gros Morne from Greens Harbour - let's use Rocky Harbour to get the distance- it is 650 km or 7 hours of driving so you will have to use two days to get there and back. I would stay on the east coast. Mid June there's a chance of seeing icebergs on the east coast, too.

Twillingate is 4 -4 1/2 hours from Greens Harbour. Spend two or three nights, then drive to Trinity for a few nights. Bonavista (and don't forget Elliston) is only 40 minutes from there and Trinity is an easy three hours to St. John's for your departure flight.
