These old huts and buildings have been recreated and will take you back in history to a Viking Port of Trade where visitors to Newfoundland, Canada can explore this intriguing life. The buildings, one being a replica of a church are made up of wood paneled walls and floors made from the earth which is how the Vikings lived in their time period.The Norstead Village is fairly close to how it would have looked from about 790-1006 AD with costumed interpreters who tell stories of the Viking era. Some of the other old huts around the Viking village are a blacksmith's workshop, chieftain's hall and a boat shed where replicas of Viking ships are kept.Demonstrations of boat building, weaving, cooking and trading can be viewed at the Norstead Viking Village and there are also many educational programs available for children. The village is open daily from June till the end of September and a whole afternoon is easily spent here exploring the Viking ways.In the background around the Norstead village, the scenery is beautiful as the harbour can fill up with pack ice. The pack ice can jam up the waterways which makes it impossible for boats to enter or leave the harbour along the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland. By the end of July, most of these massive ice chunks have melted and boats can leave or return once again.Re-created huts and buildings at the Norstead Viking Site (a Viking Port of Trade) backdropped by pack ice in the harbour in L'Anse aux Meadows, Trails to the Vikings, Viking Trail, Great Northern Peninsula, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Newfoundland Labrador, Canada.
