Western Brook Pond, Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland.
The Long Range Mountains, the northernmost extent of the Appalachians, contain numerous glacially-carved fjords. One of the most spectacular is Western Brook Pond. A 16 km lake, with a depth of 165m, Western Brook Pond is home to Atlantic Salmon, Brook Trout and Arctic Char, as well as an unusual colony of cliff nesting gulls. The Western Brook Pond Boat Tour takes you right into the spectacular, glacier-carved, land-locked fjord, as waterfalls cascade from 2000 feet above, turning to mist before reaching the pond.
