Visitors will find the site of the Icelandic settlement (1875–1882) in Markland, near Caribou in the Eastern Shore region. Historical plaques mark the foundations of many original homesteads, while walking trails and interpretive signage commemorate this little-known Icelandic community. A memorial cairn has been constructed with rocks gathered from the homestead foundations and topped with a rock shipped from Iceland.  Guided tours by appointment are available. Please note that there are no services on site. Bus tours are welcome.
