Polar bear safari in northern Quebec and Labrador


View polar bears and other arctic wildlife in one of the most remote places in North America on this photo air safari in northern Quebec and Labrador, including Torngat Mountains National Park.

Renowned for polar bear and iceberg sightings, the Quebec and Labrador Peninsula provides extraordinary photo opportunities. This photo safari by floatplane and short exploratory hikes is ideal for photographers who want to see and capture scenes of nature and wildlife in either still pictures or on video. Besides the polar bears, this tour offers an excellent chance of seeing seals, walruses, caribou, wolves and tundra dwelling black bears.

Based from a comfortable lodge in northern Quebec, each day your guide will fly you to a new location along the Labrador coast. You’ll alternate between safari by floatplane and safari on foot to observe and photograph scene of nature and wildlife. In this secluded part of the world, the wildlife observation is exceptional. Several days include trips into Torngat Mountains National Park, one of the most remote and least-visited national parks in the world.

The tranquility of the region allows you to capture fascinating life scenes of animal behavior. The polar bears can spend hours fishing for the sea run arctic char and seals can be seen resting or sunbathing on the ice floes or icebergs. Icebergs are fascinating to photograph both for their forms and the spectrum of color they emit. The delicate Arctic wild flowers color the landscape during the short summer, and they are fascinating to collect in photos. And the local landscape offers a serious of fjords, mountain peaks and waterfalls.
