    Humber Valley Activities

    Summer Activities in and around the Humber Valley Resort

    The combined effect of the jet stream providing warm air from continental America and the proximity of the Humber Valley to the ocean ensures the summer season remains very pleasant with an average daily high temperature of 24 degrees Celsius allowing guests maximum enjoyment from the range of world-class outdoor activities on offer.
    In addition to the full summer programme of on site entertainment and activities for all the family and golf on the renown River Course, Humber Valley Resort has partnered with the best local providers of outdoor experiences producing a variety of things to do and see second to none.

    Humber River offers some of the best salmon and trout fishing in the world! See the Salmon swim up stream and jump Big Falls! Amazing sights. You can also go fishing at sea whilst searching for glimpses of whales, dolphins and even icebergs. Keep your eyes peeled for moose, caribou and bears whilst enjoying the spectacularly beautiful Gros Morne National Park - a World Heritage Site. You can trek through moose country and take a boat trip at Westernbrook Gorge. Quad biking, kayaking, sailing, trekking, and many other activities and experiences are also on offer.

    Self Explore the Humber Valley Area

    Humber Valley Resort is within easy reach of two UNESCO World Heritage sites, regional theatre festivals, local museums, galleries and shops, along with countless bays coves and inlets for discovery and is perfect for those who enjoy self guided exploration. The Resort maintains a calendar of all the principal regional events to allow guests to plan their time effectively.

    Caving, Climbing and Adrenalin-Based Activities

    The Corner Brook Caves network cuts deep into the limestone rock alongside the Bay of Islands and comprise a 500m (1640 ft) long upper cavern, a sinkhole, a hidden entrance and a spectacular subterranean cave system to explore 15m (50 feet) below the earth's surface. The internal temperature remains constant all year and activity partners provide experiences tailored to the relative skills of the participants.

    Other introductory experiences that can be organized for Resort guests through our preferred professional partners include rock climbing, repelling (abseiling), power kiting, kite surfing, canyoning in the Steady Brook Falls and snorkeling with salmon in the Humber River. In the early spring after the melt white water rafting is an experience enjoyed by many.

    Horse Riding

    As with mountain biking the best trails can be found on the old logging roads which are by far the greatest way to get out and about and see the varied Humber Valley countryside. The Resort has partnered with local stables to provide a variety of lessons and tours.

    Mountain biking in the Humber Valley

    Many of the best rides are found among the hundreds of kilometres of logging roads and transmission lines that surround the Humber Valley region. Bike rentals, safety equipment and trail maps can be arranged from both the Resort and local cycle shops.

    Bird Watching

    The west coast of Newfoundland is home to a large variety of birds, including bald eagles, owls, warblers, blue jays and several species of duck. Residents and guests will be able to see many of them from their own chalet sundecks.
