Red Bay Inukshuk Labrador Coastal Drive Southern Labrador

With the proper rocks, an Inukshuk can be made like this one which adorns the shores of Red Bay located along the Labrador Coastal Drive in Southern Labrador, Canada.

A large Inukshuk built along the coastal shores of Red Bay at the Red Bay National Historic Site of Canada - Interpretation Centre is one which attracts the attention of many visitors. An Inukshuk comes in various sizes and shapes and this one appears like that of a human which many of these rock formations are supposed to resemble.

Inukshuks were once an important symbol to the Inuit people which were created to be direction markers, aiding early settlers with their travels. The rocks used to create an Inukshuk need to be fairly flat so that they sit properly on top of each other and rounded rocks were used on top to resemble the head.

The town of Red Bay is located along the Strait of Belle Isle and is easily accessed while traveling the Labrador Coastal Drive. A small fishing village which was declared as a National Historic Site located at the end of the Viking Trail is one of the world's largest 16th century whaling ports.
