Battle Harbour, an historic fishing premises preserved by a historic trust, is an exceptional destination. This was once the unofficial capital of Labrador and tremendous wealth was shipped through this port. A visit is adventure tourism, ecotourism, cultural and historic tourism, and once you are there, as relaxing and comfortable as your Grandmother's kitchen. You must travel considerable distances to get here. Most will include it in a trip to Newfoundland by taking the ferry to Blanc Sablon across the Straits of Belle Isle. From there you drive on a gravel road to Mary's Harbour and take a private ferry (people only) to the island. Many days there is only one trip a day, so you should plan your drive time carefully. There are several other wonderful sites on this stretch of Labrador's Coast, like UNESCO site Red Bay, which you should include. But staying overnight, and indeed for three or four days, at Battle Harbour will be the highlight. The restored historic homes are immaculate and the staff exceptional. You will get a flavor of the friendliness of the local folks as they proudly show you around on tour. You brought your guitar right? An evening kitchen party is normal if some guests are musically inclined. The food is authentic and wholesome. Yes, just talk to the cook about your dietary needs, she is right there. As every thing comes by boat, if you have unusual requirements let them know when you reserve. Now for the fun. You can hike all around the island, exploring the amazing geology and beautiful rock formations, picking berries, photographing everything, or just sit and watch the sea, the birds and the generally present whales and ice bergs. There are no "keep off" signs. There are trails, but you can bushwhack across the rock outcroppings and hop across the streams as people have done for hundreds of years. The sub-arctic plant life is extraordinary and you will want to bend down, look closely and cherish it. We keep going back because it is such an extraordinary place. Go, do go, but spend several days so you can absorb the history and the natural beauty.
