Corner Brook - City and Bay of Islands
Corner Brook is the largest city on Newfoundland's west coast. Dominating both the economy and the area around Corner Brook is Kruger Paper. First opened in 1925, it was purchased by Kruger Inc. in 1984. Nestled between mountains and ocean, Corner Brook's scenery is breathtaking. As you travel along the Humber Valley and the Bay of Islands you will witness the vast wilderness that characterizes this island's coast.
Man in the Mountain: A natural rock formation that resembles the face of an old man, local folklore states that he guards an ancient buried treasure.
Captain Cook Monument: This monument was erected to honour Captain James Cook for having charted this coastline in 1767. From the Cook Monument visitors are treated to a panoramic view of the city and surrounding Bay of Islands.
Margaret Bowater Park: This park was built in honour of the wife of Sir Eric Bowater, owner of the company that purchased the paper mill in 1938.
Photo opportunities abound during this combination of city, sea and forest tour.
