Mingle with muskox at this wildlife camp in northern Quebec


View muskox and other arctic wildlife from this base camp on Ungava Bay, Quebec. Join your guides at a remote Arctic coastal wildlife camp strategically positioned for encounters with musk-oxen  herds, fox dens, marine life, shorebirds, nesting birds-of-prey and ancient Inuit historical & archaeological sites.

Musk-oxen herds range the landscape here year-round, true remnants of the ice-age. Wild wolves sometimes circle the fringes of the musk-oxen, looking for the weak and old to hunt and feed their own young. Seals and an abundant variety of Arctic marine life thrive in the hidden sea-washed bedrock coves and inlets. 

Numerous birds-of-prey including falcons, eagles, osprey and hawks often nest & roost in the rock outcroppings and coastal cliffs. Nesting Loons and migratory waterfowl - in different stages of nesting, moulting or gathering in flocks for their long flight south will often alight on the local tundra ponds in order to rest and feed. Rock & willow ptarmigan cackle in the bushes. 

Depending on the departure, the summer green, flower bloom or autumn crimson & gold autumn colours on the tundra landscape are truly remarkable. Often on clear nights the aurora borealis will dance & weave intricate patterns across the skies.

The coastal region of Ungava offer unique and diverse populations of wildlife, marine and birdlife. The musk-oxen population in Nunavik are estimated to be well over 2000 animals. The area was once part of the migratory route for the caribou herds. Wolves use old caribou routes as hunting trails, and sometimes follow the musk-oxen herds. 

The sea brings a variety of birds, three species of seals, and the occasional beluga whale! Large musk-oxen herds, caribou water-crossings, remarkable northern sunsets, and depending on which departure, springtime tundra flower bloom or autumn colours and awesome displays of the aurora borealis make these special trips truly a naturalists’ paradise!
