A Fisherman's History

Experience the quiet life of a fisherman at the Raleigh Fishing Village. This replica of a 1940s fishing village will transport you to a simpler time. Sleep in rustic bunkhouse accommodations heated by a wood stove, and go on boating adventures along the rugged ocean coast. Listen closely and you'll hear the lost secrets of this legendary fishery that thrived during the boom years of the 1940s and 50s.

A Living Heritage

Visit idyllic Newtown, a town speckled with historic buildings and homes, surrounded by small harbours and channels called 'tickles' that separate the islands. Stop by the Barbour Living Heritage Village and explore the lives of the Barbour Family, a merchant family prominent in the sealing and fishing industry. Visit the original schoolhouse, sealing interpretation centre, fisherman's stage, theatre, and art gallery.

Step Back in Time

Immerse yourself in the history of Battle Harbour, once the bustling salt fish capital of Labrador. Stay overnight at Battle Harbour Heritage Properties. Here, you'll experience the past in historic buildings such as a fish merchant's home, a doctor's charming cottage, or a policeman's quaint dwelling - all restored from the early 1800s. Walk around the scenic coast and soak up the atmosphere of a bygone era while you listen to the sounds of the roaring sea.
