Here’s a Newfoundland travel tip: DO visit St. Anthony, but DON’T miss the whale-watching. Got all that? After all, there’s a reason these incredible creatures are among the top draws to this town, which you’ll find situated at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. On land there’s even more wildlife that brings in the people and keeps their cameras busy… we’re talking ones like polar bears and the largest moose population almost anywhere. But let’s also talk humans for a second: there used to be real Vikings here, hundreds of years before European explorers got around to “discovering” the continent. Today, you can see how the Vikings lived at reconstructed sod-construction houses at the 11th-century village of L’Anse aux Meadows, not far from St. Anthony. Speaking of legendary, you’ll want to find out why the 19th-century Dr. Grenfell continues to be remembered as such an important figure among the local community.
