Travelers visit Newfoundland for many reasons, among them the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the first Viking settlers and explorers. This trip along the Viking Trail starts and ends in Deer Park, Newfoundland, where there is easy access to the UNESCO site of Gros Morne National Park and its land locked fjords. We will also visit L'Anse aux Meadows, North America's only known Norse settlement and another UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as Red Bay, the Labrador home to over 1,500 Basque whalers during the 1540s. We are sure to see an abundance of wildlife, old homesteads, wild flowers and birds as we walk in the footsteps of the Vikings on this unique vacation.
