L'Anse aux Meadows
The Viking Trail is an extraordinary drive. Reaching L'Anse aux Meadows means you landed on the northernmost tip of Newfoundland. This UNESCO World Heritage Site represents the first European settlement in North America. The interpreters immerse themselves in character and make the settlement come alive. As we hiked around the extensive trail system, it is hard to believe the area was a boreal forest when the vikings landed.
L'Anse aux Meadows the community is still a fishing community and there are a number of local places to visit and eat. Since we were camping we stopped by the Norseman for a great dinner and break.
