The Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland and Labrador


Northwards we journey, past barren rock fields and mighty waters. Here on the Northern Peninsula, we find some of the most productive salmon rivers Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer. With dozens of waterways to choose from, its easy to stake a claim away from the crowds. Before long, you could be in for the fight
your life. At the farthest reaches the Northern Peninsula lies the town of St. Anthony. In early summer, massive icebergs drift past this pleasant community. It’s all too easy to hop on one of the many
boat tours in the area and see one of these floating mountains up
close. And it’s more than just icebergs. Every year, thousands of whales come here to feed in the cool waters. A half hour drive from St. Anthony, we make our way to the community of L’Anse aux Meadows. Here was discovered the first evidence of
Vikings in North America. Enthusiastic reenactors live the Viking life
daily for the enjoyment and education of visitors
from all over the world. The region is rich with history. In the town of Conche, a 200-foot tapestry
illustrates in vivid detail the legacy of the people of Newfoundland. Each day brings new excitement here on Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula. Here there are stories of people that date
back thousands of years told against the backdrop of some of nature’s most majestic spectacles.
