The wooden boardwalk along the waterfront of Battle Harbour makes it easier for visitors to Battle Island in Southern Labrador to explore the historic buildings by foot. Other throughways on the island are the old cart roads or paths which have continuously been trodden on by earlier 18th, 19th and 20th century residents of Battle Harbour.
From the boardwalk, the scenery around this historic fishing village is incredible where the rocky shoreline surrounds you as you look out over the ocean's scenery. Old fishing boats have been pulled up on shore and across the channel, Caribou Island is situated which can be reached by a short boat trip. On some days, the fog never lifts and when on Battle Harbour, an eerie but unique sense of isolation can be felt.Boardwalk along the waterfront at the historic fishing village of Battle Harbour situated on Battle Island at the entrance to the St Lewis Inlet, Viking Trail, Trails to the Vikings, Southern Labrador, Labrador, Atlantic Canada, Canada.
