After seeing live museums nearby, I felt this was a bit disappointing. My own imagination of what a Viking looks like is just as inspiring. If you have a lot of time, go, if not spend the time at the Historical sights and museums. The guide we had was fantastic!

Although historically important and artistically imposing this large (replica) statue stands between trash in a rusty harbour. Even beside the main road near the National Historic Viking site would be a better place for it.

Not much to see here other than the statue however it has a good lookout and you get to see one of three statues of this Viking.

If you are expecting anything more than you will be disappointed. The statue and what it stands for of course is impressive but I would not classify this as a must see. I must admit, the statue kind of hides behind a rock so we had fun trying to locate it.

Very nice statue at the very end on northern Newfoundland. I even got to talk with some of the local fishermen while there. Very nice people in NL.

I expected more than a statute. There was a sign but I am not really sure why it was there. Good photo op

The area is of global cultural significance in how and when the Vikings set up trading routes and established a settlement here and the site of Leif Erikson's homestead.

The Leif Erikson's International Foundation made a generous donation of this magnificent statue which is the third and final replica of the Seattle Leif Erikson statue.
