St. Anthony Basin Resources Inc. (SABRI) was founded in 1997 to administer an allocation of northern shrimp on behalf of 16 communities from North Boat Harbour to Goose Cove on the
Great Northern Peninsula.

The organization has advanced several community development projects. With help from the IGA, one project is the advancement of the Iceberg Trail. Stretching along over 59 km of coastline, the trail links together all the communities from L’Anse aux Meadows to St. Lunaire- Griquet, on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador.


L’anse Aux Meadows World UNESCO Heritage Site has seen over 30,000 visitors in normal years. The Norstead Viking Village and Port of Trade sees 10,000-12,000 visitors in a normal season. The area has six restaurants along the route, several accommodations, craft/gift shops, tours and experiences which benefit from the trail! L’anse aux Meadows also is a designated cruise ship port, as well as St. Anthony, which could see thousands of visitors in a normal season with more than a dozen ports of call!

The Iceberg trail also benefits approximately 1000 residents who reside directly along this route and a population of 4000 people within proximity.

Due to its geographic location, the region offers an extended season of iceberg and whale watching along a spectacular coastline dotted with small islands and rugged ocean cliffs. The trail system offers over 44km of coastal hiking/walking trail and an additional 15 km of roadside trail that takes the hiker/walker through all the local communities that cater to the tourism industry in the region.


With the help from an IGA grant this past year,12.5 km of trail was completed, with the development of a new trail from L'anse aux Meadows to Noddy Bay. It is important that these trails be built to the highest standard for future maintenance and the user experience. In the past two trail building seasons 25 km of trail has been added, with the hopes of continuation of trail building within the next coming year!
