    Hi guys,
    Taking the R100 and my lady friend to the Rock in late July to early Aug. We have a solid week on the Island. Port Aux Basques arrival to Argentia departure. We want to do Gros Morne for sure, but is there anything not obvious or too touristy anyone would recommend ?

    Thanks,
    ~T

    I highly recommend that you ride out to Rose Blanche when you get off the ferry at Port Aux Basques.
    The road and the view is awesome and there is a really cool lighthouse at the point that you can walk to and explore.
    While at Gros Morne make sure to visit Norris Point - again the views are incredible.
    I stayed at the Gros Morne KOA and I recommend it

    A day in France perhaps? St Pierre is but a day trip but bring your passport.
    The trick to riding here is the wind. If the direction is off the water it will be cool and probably foggy. Don't make firm plans and go to the coast that is keeping the wind off the land.

    I don't know because I have never booked any. I camp on beaches or headlands. Never really know where I am going so booking is not an option. Apologies for lack of help on this matter.
