Canoeing - The ultimate in relaxation and peace, paddle through the wilderness of Newfoundland by canoe.
At Tuckamore Lodge, we offer the highest quality outdoor experiences. Because two of the world's largest ocean currents converge off our coast (the cold Labrador current and the warm Gulf Stream) - we are blessed with an extremely rich marine environment. The lodge itself, is nestled beside a pond in a forested wilderness area.
Opportunities for canoeing are boundless and we are close to Gros Morne National Park, renowned for it's spectacular scenery, unique geology and exceptional hiking opportunities.

Fishing - Atlantic salmon, speckled trout, and arctic char are just a few of the species on offer for the fisherman in Main Brook, Newfoundland.
Guests at Tuckamore Lodge have the opportunity to put their angling skills to the test while they cast a line for Atlantic salmon, the king of sportsfish. With about ten to twelve thousand young Atlantic salmon returning to our rivers every year, Tuckamore Lodge will deliver many catches each day.
With the salmon fishing season running from the late days of June to the early days of September, there is plenty of time for Tuckamore's guests to score their big catch of the summer.
Our Atlantic salmon weigh on average six to ten pounds but there have been more and more salmon caught each year. Along with Atlantic salmon, guests at Tuckamore Lodge have the opportunity to go fishing for Brook Trout and Arctic Char. Take your whole family down to our salmon rivers and have a shot at catching the mighty Atlantic salmon!
Hiking - The geology and culture of the Great Northern Peninsula make it a prime hiking destination in the wilderness of Newfoundland.
Clean, crisp, fresh air is what draws many people to the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.
Tuckamore Lodge is ideally situated for hiking, where visitors can explore the extensive and diverse coastline of the French Shore, and the history of the Viking Trail.
Hunting - Award winning moose, bear and caribou hunting in Newfoundland.
Hosting a healthy population of Moose, Black Bears, and Caribou, the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland yields high success rates when hunting for these species of animals.
The population of Moose exceeds 120,000 animals, while caribou are estimated to 90,000. Some of the largest Black Bears in the world are known to inhabit Newfoundland and there's a healthy population of them also.
This means that Tuckamore Lodge is the prime destination for your next hunting expedition. We'll put you at the epicenter of the action through our knowledge of the land and animal behavior.
Iceberg Watching - One of the best places in the world for tourists to see the massive icebergs.
Iceberg Alley is an area of coastline which runs the length of the Labrador Coast across to the Newfoundland northern coasts.
Large chunks of ancient ice break off the Greenland Glaciers into the Atlantic Ocean and begin a 2 to 3 year journey. First heading north into Baffin Bay, they eventually make their way down the Labrador Coast from Davis Strait on the cold Labrador Currents. Some make it beyond St John's in Newfoundland but once they reach the warm currents of the Gulf Stream they melt quickly and soon disappear. Some icebergs are beached in relatively shallow bays or diverted into the Gulf of St Lawrence where their massive journey is ended.
A number of tours are available from the Northern Peninsula to see the icebergs of Iceberg Alley. The staff of Tuckamore Lodge are only too happy to provide information about the tours and make any necessary arrangements. The best time to see the icebergs from the Northern Peninsula is between May and mid July.
Plants & Fossils - A wonderful place to see rare plants, find fossils and unique geological features.
The Northern Peninsula has some of the most arctic conditions on the Island of Newfoundland. It is exactly this cold climate, together with a unique landscape and calcium-rich soil, that allows northern plant species to grow here in a rich and rare variety.
Tuckamore Lodge is recognized for exceptional outdoor experiences. It is a place inspired by the area's unique geography, distinctive culture and rare natural wonders. This is a place to unwind, reconnect with nature or experience a way of life that is steeped in centuries of tradition.
Whale-Watching - A prime whale watching destination in Atlantic Canada, tours are offered from the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.
Our region has the longest whale watching season in North America. This is due to the immense capelin feeding grounds, which surround our area. Capelin is also the key food of the Atlantic Cod & many other fish.
Don't miss the spectacular array of whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and other ocean mammals.
