Gander is found on the edge of Lake Gander on the Island of Newfoundland along Trans Canada Hwy 1. It is a morning's drive from Gros Morne National Park and Corner Brook hotel discounts. Much of Newfoundland is separated from mainland Canada by the Gulf of St. Lawrence, making it a major stopping point for Atlantic sea traffic. Here you will find many top-rated hotels with discounted room rates.
Gander is also very reachable by air, and from the early days to now, aviation has played a huge role in the culture and commerce of Gander. At one time, Gander had the world's largest airfield. See the Atlantic Wings exhibit at the Gander International Airport, close to quality, low cost motel rooms. Visit the North Atlantic Aviation Museum and discover what it is like to sit in a cockpit. Learn how Gander was important to allied defenses in WWII. Come join in the festivities the first Monday in August for the Festival of Flight with live music, special events, food and fireworks honoring Gander Day. Air travel took a fatal twist of fate for the residents of Gander as they witnessed the crash of the 1985 Arrow Air DC8 carrying civilians and 101st Airborne U.S. soldiers. See the stunning Silent Witness Memorial, honoring the 256 victims, then the Cross of Sacrifice crafted from that DC8 airliner.
There is plenty more to see beyond the skies above Gander. The lowland tundra is perfect for spotting wildlife like moose. Just a short drive from comfortable lodgings at discounted hotels, travel along the Kittiwake Coast to find soft sandy beaches, coves and inlets for fishing and rivers to canoe. In summer, go whale watching right off the shore. View seals, birds and icebergs floating by from the Long Point Lighthouse, built in 1876. Learn about the island's first nation peoples at the Beothuk Interpretative Centre in nearby Twillingate on the Islands of north Newfoundland. Wander through the forests and rugged cliffs of Terra Nova National Park to spot more wildlife like eagles and lynx. Stay and enjoy a puppet show or performance in the outdoor theatre during the summer months. Or closer to top-notch hotel rooms with cheaply priced rooms in Gander, stroll the boardwalk and canoe in Cobb's Pond Rotary Park where Gander Days is held.
