    St. Anthony Airport (IATA: YAY, ICAO: CYAY) is located 19 nautical miles (35.2 km) west northwest of St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

    I think this is important, this airport is more of a regional one I don't want you to be under the impression your can walk into town from the airport.

    There is a guy Danny who operates a bus servie into town if you need a ride.

    The airport is basic and just cross your fingers it isn't foggy there or where you have to go! Local people all have their stories of extended stays at the YAY.

    You can get there by car or... by car

    L'Anse-aux-Meadows can only be reached by car on Route 436 (L'Anse-aux-Meadows Road), which branches off from Route 430 (Viking Trail).

    However, for those rare folks like us who do not have their driver's licence, the St. Anthony town taxi can take you from St. Anthony, the largest town in the area, to L'Anse-aux-Meadows. Their phone number is 709-454-3500.

    Moose Paradise to the South

    Of course we brought our car over from the mainland via the ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques, Nfld. You really must have wheels of your own if you want to maximize your travel experience in this rather out of the way location. In driving up to St. Anthony from Port aux Choix, we detoured slightly eastward to the Roddickton area. In doing so, we encountered 3 different Moose along the highway during the afternoon - that must be why this is known as the Moose capital of the world. Do not even think about driving at night here because you will not have a hope of seeing these huge beasts as they wander out onto the highway. To make matters worse, unlike Deer, their eyes do not have that inner coating that reflects your headlights back at night! That being said, the road system was great with paved highways and some interesting scenes along the way!
