  • Red Bay is a population of little more than 100 inhabitants located in Labrador. Difficult: London/St. John´s/St. Anthony/Red Bay. There a Basque whaling factory was located in the year 1536 and vestiges give the village its current character: there are many activities and cultural expressions that are related to it. There are several "Basque" parties in may, June and July. The village has several beautiful accommodation houses next to the sea, a Museum and interpretation centre, and in winter and spring, you can see icebergs on the horizon

The bones of whales more of 400 years, really very impressive to see it along the trails in the surrounding of the site.
