Heading north from Gros Morne there is only one main road which takes you all the way to St Anthony. This is known as the Viking Trail due its connection to L’Anse aux Meadows, the only proven Viking era settlement in North America. Traversing the Great Northern Peninsula this route takes travellers through a wild and off-the-beaten-track landscape, from rocky and windswept coastal headlands to towering mountains and majestic fiords. This is a fantastic place to spot wildlife with moose and caribou abundant here, often spotted on the roadside as you drive along. However, it is perhaps the cultural history that is the most beguiling, with several ancient burial sites, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a host of characterful villages with friendly and generous locals who epitomise the spirit of the founding Newfoundlanders.
