Sagas and Shadows Parks Canada

L'Anse aux Meadows

Gather around the skáli (“kitchen”) in a reconstructed sod building and listen to Viking Sagas. Let the fire warm you as you raise your glass (of spiced partridgeberry juice) with a Viking. Hear a retelling of the Vinland Sagas and intriguing Norse myths such as how Eirik the Red founded the first Norse settlement in Greenland. Or discover how Thor got his hammer and how Thor and Loki got it back the tale of Gilitrutt - similar to Rumpelstiltskin, but with a troll witch weaving wool cloth.
