Condsiderations For Choosing Gear
An island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Newfoundland experiences a lot of active weather. We suggest packing a variety of layers to accommodate a range of conditions and temperatures.
In the winter, a wide range of weather can be experienced on any given day. Quality winter gear will help keep winter's bite away as temperatures can drop well below average values.
Average Temperature-10°C - 0°C (14°F-32°F)
Average Snowfall4-4.5 m (13-15 ft)
NoteTemperatures can drop significantly below -10ºC at higher elevations.
