We were in town a couple times for business and have stoped in each time. Staff were very friendly and they have a very good variety of outdoor equipment. There's a little something here for everyone.

This may have the best view in Happyvalley Goose Bay. Nothing like sitting in the main lounge or on the deck with the sun pouring in, cuddled up on the couch with a coffee and Baileys. Just a lovely place.

A wonderful place for snowshoeing or cross country skiing in the winter. Hiking in the Spring and Summer. A beautiful pine resort that provides a quiet place you to sit and read while overlooking the Labrador wilderness.

Dropped in as we heard there was a loppitt - that was next weekend, but members were gathering or a fun ski-snowshoe event. We toured the lovely new building with a fantastic view, and admired the groomed trails (and the rental equipment prices).
