Tour Gros Morne does recommend that all of our guests invest in medical and trip cancellation insurance policies to protect them while travelling. We also suggest reviewing the active COVID-19 clauses prior to your insurance purchase.
Our tours are purpose built custom tours for couples, families and small groups up to 6. We are in the 3rd largest national park in eastern Canada and get 1/5 the visitation of other national parks. Our guests often say it feels like they have a park to themselves and that will continue to be. We have 4 vehicles, including a 7 passenger van, 5 passenger suv and two 15 passenger leather seated vans to handle our guests and luggage therefore giving lots of space with a thorough cleaning of all vehicles daily. While we will have adjusted our tours to allow for single tours or just couples, we will be looking at other ways to make sure your safety and needs are met. This is no different than our usual care and attention for all our guests that has made us an award winning operation.
