Point Amour Lighthouse

L'Anse Amour Road, off Highway 510, 10 minutes north of Forteau on the Straits of Belle Isle, Newfoundland and Labrador.

What can I do here?

  • Climb the 128 steps to the top of the lighthouse tower - the second tallest in Canada. Bring your binoculars to get a better view of icebergs and whales.
  • Talk to interpreters about life on the Straits of Labrador and the story of the lighthouse.
  • Hike the coastal trail - about 30 minutes out to the wreck of the HMS Raleigh. A great trail for wildflowers and fossils. Continue along the shore towards a sandy beach and pause at the grave for a 12-year-old boy buried 7,500 years ago - the oldest burial mound in North America.
