Be Prepared — Some Packing Advice

Tuckamore Lodge

Newfoundland & Labrador is a windy place. For those occasional still days, a bug net may be a consideration if you are adverse to insects and are planning to hike on a forested trail. The majority of time, the bugs are kept at bay! We promise.

Taking a tour in the province of Newfoundland & Labrador requires being prepared for any type of weather and any type of conditions. Layered clothing is a must.

The weather can change quickly here. It can be sunny one minute, and rainy the next. If you plan on being out on the water, the temperature can drop as much as 15 degrees. It is important to dress appropriately and to plan for having a dry change of clothes should the weather turn bad.

There are many outdoor clothing companies that provide a variety of gear to suit your trip needs.

Some of the more popular sportswear brands include:

• North Face
• Arcteryx
• Mountain Equipment Co-op
• Patagonia
• Marmot
