Long before Christopher Columbus discovered America, Leif Erickson founded the earliest known European settlement in the New World at L’Anse aux Meadows. On your cruise to St. Anthony, take an excursion to the extraordinary at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. But you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that the Vikings weren’t the only historic settlers to the region. In 1892, British missionary Sir Wilfred Thomason Grenfell arrived in St. Anthony where he built a medical system that has grown to serve the entire region. Walk in the footsteps of a legend at the Grenfell Historic Properties. And with the longest iceberg season in the province, some of the best whale watching in North America, and the highest moose concentrations in the entire world, St. Anthony is a place beyond your wildest dreams.
