Thanks to fair winds and currents, we arrived at the community of Battle Harbour earlier than expected, and our hosts welcomed us ashore. This site focuses on the history of the Labrador cod fishery, and one of the buildings dates to the late 1700s. The last time anyone lived in this community year-round was 1968. It now runs as a small but vibrant summer community with guest accommodations and day trips.

During our stay we hiked a gorgeous nature trail, visited numerous historic buildings, shopped in the little store, and listened to a local musician; we even sampled delectable cod cakes and homemade cheesecake with partridgeberry and cloudberry sauces.
