Once the bustling salt fish capital of Labrador, Battle Harbour is perfectly preserved in the history of a bygone era.
For two centuries, Battle Harbour was the economic and social centre of the area. Today, this National Historic District of Canada has been revived, as a place to immerse yourself in the traditional life and times of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.
Here, houses, stores, fishery buildings and churches have been restored and filled with historical original items. During your stay, you’ll sleep in a merchant’s home or doctor’s charming period cottage, or maybe a policeman's house. In Battle Harbour, you’ll soak up the atmosphere and fully experience the sounds of the ocean and the simple pleasures of times past.
During the day, explore historic structures, walkways, and work areas. Then hike around the craggy shores of the island and everywhere in between. Visit the oldest and most diverse fishing rooms in Newfoundland and Labrador and experience the lives of fisherman and merchants living in the community in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. In the evening, eat with your fellow travellers and be entertained by traditional song, dance and recitation.
Take a moment or two to enjoy the company of others in the Sir Wilfred Grenfell Cottage. Have your discussions where Commander Robert E. Peary first spoke to the press, wiring news overseas detailing his historic trip to the North Pole in 1909. Get married in the second oldest Anglican Church in Newfoundland and Labrador. Spend your vacation in a different place and time.
Battle Harbour is located on Battle Island, off Labrador's southeast coast. To reach it, sail from Mary's Harbour on board the MV Iceberg Hunter, which makes one round trip daily. This hour-long journey across St. Lewis Inlet offers a great opportunity to view whales, icebergs, dolphins, seals and seabirds.
