Deer Lake (Newfoundland and Labrador)
Deer Lake is a town in Western Newfoundland. It is the gateway to the Great Northern Peninsula and the closest major town to Gros Morne National Park.
Deer Lake is located on the Trans-Canada Highway, about 50 km north of Corner Brook.
Viking Express operates limited bus service from Corner Brook through Deer Lake to Gros Morne National Park and the Great Northern Peninsula.
Deer Lake Regional Airport (IATA: YDF) has daily flights to Halifax, St. John's and Toronto year-round and to Montreal in summer.
Heading north on Highway 430 will bring you two UNESCO World Heritage Sites:
- The entrance to Gros Morne National Park, with great hiking and some breathtaking landscapes, is about 25 kilometres away.
- L'Anse aux Meadows, the site of the first Viking landing in the New World, is several hours drive to the north near St. Anthony (a little over 400 km away).
