Adventure Canada is thrilled to present two intimate experiences on Labrador’s wild and stunningly beautiful Northern coast. This Inuit homeland is also Canada’s newest National Park, the Torngat Mountains. Inuit legend holds that in these mountains everything – the rock, the soil, the air – has a spirit – and we say, it’s where you can find yours.
The Torngat Mountains have been home to Inuit and their predecessors for thousands of years. The spectacular wilderness of this National Park comprises 9,700 km2 of the Northern Labrador Mountains natural region. The park extends from Saglek Fjord in the south, including all islands and islets, to the very northern tip of Labrador; and from the provincial boundary with Quebec in the west, to the iceberg-choked waters of the Labrador Sea in the east. The mountain peaks along the border with Quebec are the highest in mainland Canada east of the Rockies, and are dotted with remnant glaciers. Polar bears hunt seals along the coast, and both the Torngat Mountains and George River caribou herds cross paths as they migrate to and from their calving grounds.
Hosted by Adventure Canada guide extraordinaire, Mike Beedell, and a team of Inuit expedition professionals and scientists from Nunatsiavut and Parks Canada, our two excursions offer exciting opportunities for both the advanced and moderate adventurer and are designed to give you an up-close look into the life, culture and wilderness of this Northern world.
