Once were we finished going through the village, we did the Viking trail... Beautiful scenery. Makes you appreciate how the Viking survived in this rugged climate. You can climb up to that statue and take you pic with the Vikings lol

Booking with Hanover Holidays is the most comfortable trip one could ever take. Just returned from the Viking Trail of Nfld and Labrador. Our tour director Jan and bus driver Daphne were both supreme! The tour had some many events and every hotel excellent, meals were always great. The tour included several live musicians, light houses and fun people. We had a fresh lobster lunch, Enjoyed a dinner together and became members of the Royal Order of Screechers. A fun nite. We were truly blessed with warm weather. A heart warming trip to these great places.

The road from Deer Lake to L’Anse aux Meadows is aptly named, homage to the first European visitors to the continent [sorry, Mr Columbus]. It is of course more a name than anything else, whetting the appetite for the World Heritage Site at its end. Along the way the road often hugs the coast over a coastal plain. Many little hamlets are passed through in this rugged part of the province.

I see other folks writing that they found this road to be pretty good. I reckon they might be driving a small car, not a camper...........my experience was that the main road has good parts but some truly terrible parts with potholes, washboard asphalt, heavily grooved rain channels (causing hydro-planing), small to non-existent shoulders, etc. Yes the scenery is fabulous, for any passengers. The driver will mostly be watching the road and the traffic.

We drove this from Gros Morne to St Anthony twice. The views are incredible, great places to visit along the way and even in the rain it was a very scenic and somewhat educational drive. If you are thinking about doing it, we highly suggest you do!

Spent 2 weeks travelling this route. The road is in good condition, (lots of signs to watch out for moose) there's gorgeous scenery, lots of interesting places to stop, we were not disappointed. The only down-side is there are patches of giant hog-weed all over, even on the the hiking trails: such a shame, as this dangerous weed can suffocate native wild-flowers, and it spreads rapidly. We were surprised to see no signs of warning, even at Parks Canada sites, as touching the weed can give a serious rash, and even lead to blindness. One official we asked about the weed, was nonchalant about it spreading.

Lovely views, road for the most part was in good condition, and gentle easy drive. We were able to see a couple icebergs and smell the ocean - amazing.

This road is just loaded with attraction from Cow Head north.Not just a road to spped through. There is a historic site in Port au Choix, along with art shops.A nice french cultural center. A salmon interpretive center. Some of the world's oldest fossils of early life. There is the ferry to Labrador, several walking trails. Then, when you get north, the attractions of St. Anthony's, and the viking sites. Take a full day to enjoy the journey.

We traveled from Gros Morne to L'Anse aux Meadows and back over the course of 10 days. The "trail" connects UNESCO parks and historic sights, along with tiny fishing villages in between. We hiked in Gros Morne - so many trails - explored Port aux Choix - also many trails - and visited the viking landing at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula, where the Appalachian Range ends. Make sure to stop at the Discovery Centers for the parks. Also see the Thrombolites and Limestone Barrens in Flower's Cove, and shop in the small village museums filled with homemade crafts. The trail is meant for ambling, not speeding, and is worth all the small discoveries along the way. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as moose and woodland caribou. We went at the end of May and early June, still chilly but before tourist high season.
