Backpacking expeditions into Torngat Mountains National Park in Labrador


Explore Labrador's Torngat Mountain National Park on this guided backpacking expedition. Known as a remote and unexplored region, the Torngat Mountains are one of those rare places on earth where you can still see nature as it was a thousand years ago.  The glaciers have hewn through the crest of the mountains to create gigantic oceanic fjords. The rivers erosive force has formed the extraordinary canyons and the continents collisions have heaved and folded the Labrador coast to expose the earth geology like an open notebook on the Quaternary Era.  

Set off on a trek accompanied by a guide and discover the scenic wonders of the Arctic Cordillera – rugged mountains, oceanic fjords, thousand-year-old glaciers, towering waterfalls, fathomless canyons… With so many places to be discovered, it is not surprising that this forgotten land at the northern edge of Quebec and Labrador is considered as one of the wildest of the world.

For those confident enough to set out on their own, a variety of self-guided treks are also available.
