L'Anse aux Meadows

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, L'Anse aux Meadows is a fascinating archaeological site on the northernmost tip of the island of Newfoundland. The architectural remains found at L'Anse aux Meadows have been identified as belonging to an 11th century Viking settlement. With the exception of Greenland, it is the only Viking settlement in North America and quite possibly the area referred to as Vinland in the Norse sagas. The ruins are now an interactive and educational tour site, where visitors can enter the reconstructed Viking Longhouse, try on helmets and wield swords, and speak with costumed guides eager to share Norse traditions and mythology. With it being 270 miles (about 433km) north of Deerfield along the Viking Trail (Route 403), it's quite an effort to reach. But there's plenty to see and do along the way, including the spectacular Gros Morne National Park.
