This coastal town offers sparkling waters and picturesque views just a short distance from the beautiful Gros Morne National Park. The Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and offers a fascinating insight into plate tectonics, as well as spectacular scenery and a variety of flora and fauna to spot. The Norris Point area is perfect for photographers. Head to Jenniex House and Lookout to take advantage of the stunning views over the Tablelands, an otherworldly rocky landscape that promises unbeatable holiday snaps. Jenniex House is an important heritage site in the area; overlooking Bonne Bay, the saltbox house dates back to 1926 and now houses local crafts and a museum.
There are plenty of hiking trails and walking paths around Norris Point to explore the natural beauty of the local area; the town itself is just off the Viking Trail which stretches from the top of the Great Northern Peninsula at St Anthony down to Deer Lake at the base. The James W. Humber Trail stretches 4,000 feet to the shoreline, where you can explore the beach and a traditional fishing village – you may even be lucky enough to spot a whale off the coast! For fantastic views of Norris Point itself, take to the Burnt Hill Trail.
