Fodor's Expert Review Norstead Viking Village

L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site Family

Two kilometers (1 mile) east of L'Anse aux Meadows is Norstead, a reconstruction of an 11th-century Viking port, with a chieftain's hall, church, and ax-throwing area. Interpreters in period dress answer questions as they go about their Viking business (albeit in sneakers). A highlight is the Snorri, a reconstructed viking knarr that sailed from Greenland to L'anse Aux Meadows in 1997, re-creating Leif Eriksson's voyage.
