For a unique viewing experience of the Northern Lights, visit the Norstead Viking Village at L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland. Here, buildings with wood paneled walls and earthy floors alongside Viking ships bring to life the charm of the Viking period. On dark winter nights, when the skies are clear of light pollution, stargazers can catch a breathtaking display of Aurora borealis. The lights appear when electrical charged particles enter the Earth’s atmosphere from the Sun. The variations in colour and appearance as streamers and shooting rays further adds to the beauty of this extraordinary performance by nature.
