Visitor's Centre
The Gateway to Labrador Visitor's Centre is just a short walk from the hotel and is located in a restored early 20th century church. In addition to providing information, the Gateway offers a series of interpretative panels, art pieces, and artifacts to relate the story of the people of Labrador, from the first inhabitants who arrived in Labrador some 9,000 years ago to present day settlers. The Gateway also houses a display of artifacts from the excavated Jersey Room at nearby L'Anse Au Cotard.

This trail provides for easy walking with its crushed stones and includes interpretative signage. It will lead you to the Jersey Rooms, where you will see the foundations of buildings and stone walkways that were part of an 19th century fishing enterprise.

Point Amour Lighthouse
The Point Amour Lighthouse has figured prominently in the lives of southern Labradorians for well over a century. Today, it stands as a symbol of our maritime heritage and diverse history - a history which has always been intimately linked with the sea.

The Lighthouse is now operated as one of the region's Provincial Historic Sites and is located just off Route 510, between the communities of Forteau and L'Anse au Loup. The lighthouse is open daily from mid-May to the end of September, 10:30 am to 5:30 pm. Guides in period-costume are available to assist with group or individual tours. Admission to the site includes a small fee. Please ask at our front desk for details.

Red Bay National Historic Site of Canada
Journey to Red Bay National Historic Site to get introduced to the world's first industrial-scale whale fishery. This site commemorates 16th century Basque whaling in Canada and the role it played in the history of our country. Red Bay has been designated as one of the principal 16th century whaling ports because of the numerous, well-preserved historical resources found there. Shipwrecks found at Red Bay have helped understand major developments in the evolution of ship design and construction in the 16th century.

The Red Bay Historic Site is operated by Parks Canada and includes interpretive displays and numerous original artifacts at the Visitor Interpretation Centre. We recommend you see the 430 year old whaling chapula and take the short boat ride to Saddle Island for a walking tour of sites where Basque whalers once worked and lived.
