Traveling to or from L'anse-aux-Meadows

Crow Head

The Northern Terminus is at Crow Head, at the end of a short hiking trail of 1 kilometer, which branches off of Highway 436 near Spillar's Cove. The UNESCO World Heritage site at L'anse-aux-Meadows is just 3 kilometers away, near the end of the highway. The closest village of any note is St. Lunaire-Griquet, which is 12 kilometers South on the highway. When it comes to transportation, the only option is St. Anthony, the largest town in Northern Newfoundland at just over 2,000 people, which is 40 kilometers South of L'anse-aux-Meadows.

Between L'anse-aux-Meadows and St. Anthony

There are no public transportation options to travel between L'anse-aux-Meadows and St. Anthony. There are taxi services in St. Anthony. Realistically, the best option to travel between the two is hitching a ride with a local person or a visitor to the UNESCO World Heritage site. Otherwise, the distance can be walked in one day.

By Bus

NorPen Bussing passes by the St. Anthony Airport (which is over 50 kilometers from St. Anthony) once or twice per week, and goes all the way South to Deer Lake and even Corner Brook. Deer Lake has an airport, and DRL has daily service Southeast to St. John's or Southwest to Channel-Port-aux-Basques. This is the only real option if air travel is not possible, but air travel is not significantly more expensive, and much more convenient.

By Air

PAL Airlines flies between St. Anthony and St. John's, where other airlines fly to major Canadian hubs such as Toronto and Montréal. The airport is 50 kilometers from the town of St. Anthony, so taking a taxi is the most convenient option.
