Photo: Norstead Viking Site Boardwalk Newfoundland Canada

When arriving at the Norstead Viking Site in Newfoundland, Canada follow the boardwalk to the huts along the water's edge.

At the entrance way to the Norstead Viking Site, you will find public washrooms, the office and the gift shop and then you follow the boardwalk to the main attractions. Situated along the coastline of Newfoundland, Canada a historic world of a Viking Port of Trade lets visitors step back in time where costumed interpretors re-enact history.A boat house is probably the first hut visitors will explore to see the Viking ships and then onto the Chieftain's Hall, the Church and the Blacksmith's Shop. People listen to many of the Viking stories, watch a blacksmith forge iron, learn to shape clay and experience the art of spinning wool from sheep which is then weaved into a loom. All of these primitive forms of life were activities that the Vikings did on a daily basis.Each of the huts at the Norstead Viking Site are made of wood paneled walls and earthen floors which have been reconstructed bringing about the true appearance of the Viking years. ... continue below the picture...

... This is the only genuine Viking site throughout North America and the boardwalk is the onset of the Norstead Viking village along the Newfoundland, Canada coastline.In the backdrop, pack ice fills the harbour that has made its way inland after breaking free from the massive icebergs. The pack ice can linger around the waterways until the end of July, which prohibits any water vessels from coming or going from the harbour.This village and Viking Port of Trade is open to the public each June, when all the pack ice still fills the harbour, and does not close again until the end of September. The Norstead Viking Site is a worthwhile adventure for the whole family while visiting Newfoundland, Canada.Norstead Viking Site, A Viking Port of Trade, Trails to the Vikings, Viking Trail, Great Northern Peninsula, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
