Meet the Vikings
Roderick Eime discovers a Viking trail through Eastern Canada aboard Silversea’s revamped Silver Cloud.
I’m not tall, but I still had to duck my head to squeeze into the sod cabin here at L’Anse aux Meadows, at the very tip of Canada’s eastern island of Newfoundland.
Inside it was dark and eery and a chap with a scary looking axe sat warming himself beside a open fire. It could have been 1000 AD and he could have been the famous Nordic seafarer, Leif Erikson, but his teeth were too good and the place didn’t stink of rotting seal meat.
