The Northern Peninsula
Tuckamore Lodge is located in the centre of a vast region of exceptional natural beauty. There are long stretches of sandy beach, rocky headlands that rise to incredible heights, and tiny outport communities tucked away in sheltered coves.
The countryside teems with wildlife. Majestic moose, herds of caribou, and huge black bears roam the area in great numbers. The rivers and streams are home to the Atlantic Salmon, and the lakes and ponds are filled with trout - from pan size to record size.
Southwest Pond, home to Tuckamore, is also home to several Bald Eagles, Loons and other birds of interest. Moose are plentiful and visit shores of the ponds almost daily. A quiet evening walk will take you past a beaver lodge or gentle river steady.
For the photographer, Main Brook is a lifetime dream. Deep fjords cut into the rugged East Coast providing shelter for the villages with the ancient names of Harbour Deep and Hooping Harbour. This isolation has caused time, in many ways, to stand still, preserving these special places and a lifestyle unknown in the modern world.
For the naturalist, Newfoundland and Labrador's boreal barrens offer rich diversity of wildflowers and plants. The variety is overwhelming and the colour spectacular. Migratory seabirds abound on the coastlines of a nearby ecological reserve.
Whale watching is a Tuckamore speciality. Some of our guests have been returning to the Lodge year after year for prize-winning photos. Hare Bay has been noted for some of the best sighting opportunties on the Island.
But summer is not the only time of the year for Tuckamore's wilderness opportunities. Take an afternoon to go ice fishing. Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing are all right here at the lodge. For the more adventurous, an overnight trip in the country can be arranged.
In addition to our two main lodges we also have two remote lodges for our guests. One is located on White's Arm Pond and offers the utmost in tranquility and peace. The other is a basic canvas camp in a setting of extreme beauty on the remote Grey Islands, 14 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean.
