Wonder Shore

Wonder Shore Hiking Trails

The Wonder Shore trails cover dozens of kilometers of unspoiled nature along the Kittiwake Coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, from the Greenspond Causeway to the white sandy beaches of Lumsden. This trail system was first walked by the earliest settlers of Newfoundland and Labrador over 300 years ago, with many unique historic sites and scenic vistas to discover along the way. Explore the Barbour Heritage Village in Newtown,

or hike past the graveyards of the resettled communities of Cat Harbour North and South. Situated alongside Iceberg Alley, the trails are the perfect place to spot icebergs, whales, and seabirds of all kinds along the idyllic coast. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, history buff, or simply seeking tranquility, these trails are a perfect haven for exploration and discovery.
