One of the things on my bucket list can now be taken off. Unfortunately, the day we were there it was raining and some nasty flies were wreaking havoc. Good interpretive centre.

First our visit was a family visit with elderly Mom's, not kids or teenagers. Easy access for the Moms, boardwalk and flat surfaces. Unsure about wheelchair access as we climbed stairs down to the site but I would guess they have it. This was my...More

It was windy and cold but who care since I saw icebergs in the area. We didn't do a guided tour but it was still lovely and informative since the staff at the hut provided info and answered all our questions.

Small museum and video interpretation of the site is indoors; trails, "ruins", and replica structures are down the hill from the visitor's center. The best way to see the site is on a guided tour, offered at the center every several hours. Very informative! This...More

We were fortunate to have Clayton as our guide. He has been involved with the site for years and has some wonderful stories. The views are beautiful and if you're there during iceberg season it is awesome. It is windy and there's a cold breeze...More

The combination of the guided tour with the guide's expert commentary, and the reconstructed buildings with their authentically-clad, working inhabitants, gives visitors a look back at life as it may have been in the age of the Vikings. Well presented. No admission fee.

Visit here to experience when mankind finally came 'full circle' on the earth. Beautiful area with good tour guides and reenactment of life in 1,000 AD. Hike the trails for unforgettable views. Maybe you will see Labrador on a clear day.

I think the tour was about 45 min after we had watched the movie inside and looked around inside. It was a guided tour and I'm not sure how often they go. We felt it was more educational with guide. You could still walk it... More
