Battle Harbour, Canada Cruise Port

While an exact date for the birth of Battle Harbour, Canada has not been established, it is known that the John Slade & Company of Poole, England was using the island in 1771. At that time, being located on the southeast coast of Labrador, Battle Harbour was the cruise port for ships heading up north. Battle Harbour soon became the unofficial capital of Labrador and was used for a long time as a great source of cod. Nowadays, this National Historic District of Canada has been restored as a place to immerse yourself in the traditional life and times of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. During the day, explore historic structures, walkways, and work areas or hike around the shores of the island. Below we have listed a few of our favorite things to do when cruising to the historic town of Battle Harbour, Canada:
  • Explore the Sir Wilfred Grenfell Cottage where Commander Robert Peary spoke to the press about his trip to the North Pole back in 1909.
