L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site
At the tip of Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula, lies the first known evidence of European presence in the Americas.
Here, a Norse expedition sailed from Greenland, building 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 the Viking encampment, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.
You’ll meet costumed Viking interpreters as you tour the recreated base camp, and discover original artifacts from this internationally renowned archaeological find.
