Unlike the marine atlantic ferry where you can sometimes make reservations a few days in advance or pull into the standby lanes for the next crossing, the Apollo is a much smaller vessel and the demand far exceeds its capacity, especially with Phase III of the TLH complete. You will need to make a deposit as many people would call in and book spots all the time so they could always ensure themselves a spot but then not always use them. The TLH can be done in a sedan. Pick up the free satellite phone rental for the leg between HVGB and Labrador City as cell service is non-existent for most of your journey.
Labrador does have its own tourism department and may be more valuable for information on current highway conditions than the provincial one based out of St.

Just ran across this posting and it grabbed my interest. Specifically, I enjoy isolated roads in the North Country. The bottom line is I am experienced with these types of roads. The route I've chosen including side trips is about 8, miles. Therefore, the Honda is the best choice for the trip.
I only have a 5 week window beginning the first of July. The route is as follows:. Labrador City. Happy Valley-Goose Bay. North Sydney. Bangor Intl. My preference is to "boondock" camp rather than stay in a campsite with other people. Is that possible in Labrador? Are there any? As I stated earlier in this topic… the Trans-Labrador Highway has only been open about a year now… so some of the kinks are still being ironed out.
Your route sounds good curious though… I take it Bangor Intl refers to the airport… are you flying onto Montreal and then home… leaving that trusty Honda behind for greener pastures in Maine? LOL… Yes I read posts and pick up on details!!
Please choose tour parameters to see available tours.
As I said the info is a bit sketchy so far… but Labrador Tourism says that there are accommodations in all communities… and well I suppose one could always GOOGLE to find out more info… or again contact Labrador Tourism directly. As for that aspect, I am not sure what the Local or Provincial Rules Department of Natural Resources for open camping will be… I do know that Northern Quebec for example gets many Summertime Forest Fires due to Lightening Strikes etc… and that similarly you may find that fires of any kind are prohibited outside of a recognized campground… these are the kinds of Questions you need to ask to Labrador Tourism.
As for Federal and Provincial Parks… as far as I know and can see on the Maps that I have there are virtually NONE in the whole of Labrador except for Torngat Mountains National Park Reserve at the most northerly tip of Labrador… and it is not accessible by either road or plane … and the Garnet Islands Ecological Reserve which is offshore from Cartwright, and one assumes only accessible by boat if at all … so NO not really anything notable on the Trans-Labrador Highway part of your route… on the otherhand many great Parks on the rest of your trip up from Colorado, thru Newfoundland, and back on the mainland thru the Maritimes and Maine.
Yes, I expecting hoping the TLH is rougher and more isolated than the Alaska Highway which has lost much of its adventure over the years.

I'll check with the authorities about camping. Even though a campfire is nice, a Yankee candle will do. Wine, that was a really good response you gave e3brown, and very informative and helpful as well. I am very glad you did, as I have also driven the roads he has mentioned, and they are just not that isolated anymore, so I would have worried that he did not realize just how really isolated Labrador roads are.
I am however very happy about your upcoming adventure, e3brownthat will be a terrific birthday gift to yourself. My advice to you would be to plan a daily route, book reservations and ferries well in advance. Make sure you have food and water with you on the journey, a satellite phone would be handy.
Your vehicle should be top notch. I usually carry extra fuel because anything can happen along the way.

Make sure you have good tires and a good spare. You should be familiar with changing a tire too. Low vehicles have problems over these roads so a higher vehicle would do better. Best of luck. Tip: All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.
