Norstead Viking Village at L'Anse aux Meadows

Norstead Viking Village

At L’Anse aux Meadows, you can almost see them pulling their longboats up on shore, and almost hear their voices. The Vikings landed on this barren point of land in northern Newfoundland and established the continent’s first European settlement.  At the Norstead Viking Village in L’Anse aux Meadows, immerse yourself in Viking life.  Join costumed interpreters in the dim light of the Viking-style Chieftain’s Hall and listen to mysterious tales. Step aboard the full-scale replica of the Viking ship “Snorri”. Get your “ruins” told by the wise women and shape clay into pottery the way the Vikings did.  Or learn the Viking craft of nalbinding – it’s older than knitting!
