Newfoundland & Labrador's Viking Trail from Corner Brook

Thousands of years of history come alive as you ferry across the Cabot Strait to explore the West Coast of Newfoundland &amp; Labrador. Learn about ancient peoples-the Maritime Archaic and Dorset Indians at Port au Choix, the Vikings in L'Anse aux Meadows, and the Basque Whalers in Red Bay - as you meet the hospitable and friendly people of today. See the beauty of Gros Morne National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and coastal fishing communities. Take a boat tour in St. Anthony (weather permitting) where you may see whales and, depending on the time of year, icebergs!<br><br>*Please note that our June 13 departure is bilingual English/German, and our August 15 departure is bilingual English/French

This was truly the Grenfell experience. Your admission allows you to visit several areas. There is a very informative film of Dr. Grenfell's work along the coast showing the harsh conditions he braved and a handicraft shop in the museum area. He was a remarkable man who not only doctored the people but at times acted as minister to marry couples! Then a short drive takes you to Dr. Grenfell's home where you can see his living area as well as his office. The tour guides are great and let you go at your own pace. You can also hike the trail to the old tea room. Beware of the mosquitos while hiking! Don't miss this.

We did not visit the museum areas, just the handicraft shop. It had a nice variety of local work in a variety of materials. Well worth a visit.

Grenfell’s home, charming museum where the arctic explorer and doctor lived. Helpful staff Great walk up to the old tea room- long since burned down, but a great location. Such an important man in st. Anthony. Well worth the short hike up to his home

Thanks for visiting the home where Dr. Grenfell and his family lived. It's a lovely heritage house, and a great view at the top of the hill where Dr. Grenfell and his staff used to go for an afternoon cup of tea and scone to relax in a lovely tea shack. Thanks for the response and comments.

This is one of the most thought-provoking museums we have ever visited. What an amazing man he was - and we had absolutely no idea about him before we visited. It's heart-warming and also very moving to see the exhibits and read about the life and work of this amazing man. The introductory film is excellent and the displays are brilliant. There is also an outstanding shop on site.
