Experience our Living Heritage

Learn More
There are places on this Earth that continue to live on inside of you long after you’ve returned home. Where the stories, tales, and traditions are filled with old-world charm, and coloured by Irish, English, French, and Aboriginal influences. There’s no better way to soak it all up than through authentic encounters and hands-on learning experiences – the kind that leads to a true understanding of the living culture and traditions you can find in every corner of Newfoundland and Labrador. 

You can sleep in a lighthouse keeper’s residence in Labrador, or help build a boat in Winterton. Craft a hand-laid rock wall in English Harbour, or learn rug hooking and make toutons in Broom Point. Catch a cod from a traditional Newfoundland dory in Cox’s Cove and take part in an archaeological dig near Ferryland. Or, experience Viking life from 1,000 years ago at the UNESCO World Heritage Site at L’Anse aux Meadows.
