The archaeological remains at the site were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. Exhibits highlight the Viking lifestyle, artifacts, and the archaeological discovery of the site. Visitors can also explore the hiking trails to nearby bays and lakes.

In the past four to five thousand years, many people have lived at l'Anse aux Meadows; some stayed longer than others. Among these people was a small group of Norse sailors. The remains of their camp, discovered in 1960 by Helge and Anne Stine Ingstad, is the oldest known European settlement of the New World.

The L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic site is strongly influenced by the Labrador Current and icebergs are commonly seen, particularly in June and July. This resulting cool maritime climate has influenced the vegetation of the area. The L'Anse aux Meadows site is dominated by barrens, coastal bogs, and stunted forests locally known as tuckamore. Together these plant communities are home to a large variety of plants, over 280!
