We visited on June 28 2016. On July 18th the site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Mistaken Point ...We drove three hours to the southeastern tip of the peninsula to visit Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve for another memorable experience. A 45-minute hike across a plain of arctic plants and trees (and two river crossings) lead to the roaring ocean where we took off our shoes, put on protective cloth boots and explored a 565 million year old sea floor containing fossils of the oldest complex life-forms found anywhere on earth. Absolutely amazing!
