L'Anse aux Meadows

At the tip of Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula, an expedition from Greenland built a small encampment of timber-and-sod buildings over 1000 years ago. Against a stunning backdrop of rugged cliffs, bog and coastline, discover the fascinating archaeological remains of this Viking encampment, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1978. Meet costumed interpreters as you tour the recreated base camp, and discover original artifacts from this internationally renowned archaeological find.
