Newfoundland, the largest island of the province, was settled over 4000 years ago by the Dorset people, a pre-Inuit people, who spanned across Arctic North America. However, when Viking explorer Leif Eriksson named this land Vinland in the eleventh century, these people had either died of or moved away. Whether the Vikings actually landed on Newfoundland was debated for centuries – it is recounted in the Sagas but could never be confirmed – until 1968, upon the discovery of L’Anse aux Meadows.
Now a national historic site, this fascinating UNESCO heritage-listed archaeological dig transports visitors to the time of Vikings.
The provincial capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, St John’s, is located on the south eastern coast of the larger island and is full of charm. Colourful houses are bundled tightly onto each street, with criss-crossing roads and hidden alleys created hundreds of years ago by horse and carriage. Rich history and cultural life abound, with museums, sites and a thriving night life.
Gros Morne national park, UNESCO world heritage-listed, is one of the most significant parks geologically in the world, with rocks pushed up from Earth’s core into soaring mountains, cradling misty lakes and tiny seaside communities.
