Fun for a quick stop to get your picture with Lief himself😁 Small plaque with info too. Nice view of the cove too.

We kind of stumbled on this monument and were so glad we did. It really isn't advertised anywhere and is almost hidden away but it tells a great story and is very picturesque. Parking is right beside it and it is almost beside the Norseman...More

It's hard to get a photo with the big rock on one side and fishing sheds on the other. It costs nothing to see it and it is just a few minutes from the National site. Worth a look.

Next to the norseman restaurant you find the Leif Ericson Monument, who once was the leader of the norsemen arriving as the first Europeans in North America. You learn more about him at the national historic site nearby.

Was driving around and just happened to see this and stopped to view it. Great statue to stop and take pictures with! A good story on the plaque explaining the story of the statue.

This is at the very tip and you can see icebergs from this location. The statue was nice and the history on the plaques were nice to tell what was what.

Interesting setting. A great statue and just down the road from L'Anse Aux Meadows. The restaurant was closed but this was an interesting replacement.

This is just a statue. There is no park around it, no gardens, no spectacular vista - just a few fishing buildings and a road. It's a nice place to take a selfie to show you have been there, but other than that there is...More

If you love monuments as I do then after leaving the National viking historic site turn left into the small fishing village to discover this remembrance of a past explorer.

How did one travel thousand of miles in an open boat, how did they come to build huts from such a barren area, where did beechnut trees come from, so many questions and so many facts unknown
