About Labrador

Labrador, The Big Land, one of the last untamed, unspoiled places left on earth. It stretches from the Strait of Belle Isle in the south, to Cape Chidley in the far north, boasting towering mountains, massive rock faces and an infinite supply of lakes and rivers, not to mention waters seasonally teeming with whales and icebergs. Here, you'll find plenty of fresh air, crystal clear water and truly authentic people.

Torngat Mountains National Park is a carved, mysteriously beautiful landscape reminiscent of the earth a million years ago. This is where outdoor aficionados can indulge their passion, with 300,000 square kilometres to hike, photograph, snowmobile and cross-country ski. And where rivers challenge even the most adventurous whitewater canoeists. You will also find an abundance of wildlife, including polar bears, the largest carnivore in the world.

Teeming with game and fish, Labrador is home to the best brook trout angling on the planet; here, you'll find trophy-sized catches. The region is a pristine paradise for sports fishermen and hunters, and there are plenty of experienced and resourceful outfitters to guide you along the way.

The people of Labrador are proud and self-reliant. The Innu and Inuit have lived here for thousands of years, and their cultures are rooted in a deep, spiritual relationship with the environment. The long and intriguing history of Labrador's indigenous people can be traced back almost 9,000 years, with the oldest funeral monument in North America, dating back 7,500 years – 3,000 years before the Egyptian pyramids were built. The region also boasts rich New World history, thanks to a once-plentiful right and bowhead whale population, which attracted 16th-century Basque whalers to the Strait of Belle Isle. Labrador's unique heritage is celebrated time and again at area folk festivals, carnivals, sporting and community events throughout the year.

Under a blanket of magical northern lights, the winter months bring with them the hum of a thousand snowmobiles carving through the untouched wilderness. And the quieter winter pursuits, like cross-country and downhill skiing, ice fishing, and winter camping, set against an abundance of breathing room, are always good for body and soul.

    Home to the Inuit and their ancestors for thousands of years, Torngat Mountains National Park is like no other. Completely pristine without permanent campgrounds or roads, it's a land of mountains and polar bears, small glaciers and caribou. A place where the Inuit hunt, fish, and travel just as aboriginal peoples have for thousands of years.

    The best way to safely explore the park is through services provided by Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station in Saglek Bay, Labrador, the gateway to Torngat Mountains National Park.

    Getting to the park requires some planning. You will need to travel through either Goose Bay or Nain in Labrador. Contact the Base Camp to learn about the options on how to arrive at the park. Both the Base Camp and adventure tour operators offer a variety of multi-day packages which are usually available in July and August. This trip is not for the faint of heart. It’s not an easy destination to get to, but the rewards are huge.

    Tip: There is no internet connection, but there is running water, hot showers, and flushable toilets. Both the tents and insulated domes are heated and have electricity. All activities are done with the assistance of skilled Inuit Bear Guards. Visitors should carefully consult the website about what to bring, and be prepared for a flexible itinerary.

    Labrador's southeast coast is one of the longest-settled parts of the province, with early aboriginal presence dating back almost 9,000 years. In the 1500s the Basques hunted whales here, and they were followed by French and English fishermen curing cod. You can find the second-tallest lighthouse in Canada at Point Amour.

    Labrador is changing, a wild land that is becoming more accessible. From Labrador City and Wabush on the Québec border to L'Anse-au-Clair, the Trans-Labrador Highway (Route 500) crosses The Big Land connecting the west to the coast. The 30,000 residents are travelling to larger centers to shop and visitors are discovering the festivals, events, and attractions that have drawn few outsiders - until now.

    You can reach western Labrador via Québec Route 389, a partially paved 570-kilometer highway that runs north from Baie-Comeau. The travel time is around eight hours. About 300 kilometres of the road is paved, in two sections, with the rest being gravel. Services along the route are very limited, but the terrain is marvelous, rising from the lower reaches of the north shore to the escarpment that is the Canadian Shield.

    The completion of a road link to central Labrador and the world beyond, and the extension of ferry service between Newfoundland and Labrador to a year-round operation, is bringing change to the southeast coast of The Big Land. For the first time ever, residents can drive north and then west to North America. It has also opened up this area to exploration by visitors who are eager to see a part of the world that was previously beyond their rubber-tired reach. What these new explorers find is a wild land dotted with a few coastal settlements inhabited mainly by the descendants of fisherman who began to settle here 200 years ago.
  • 1152 km
    The interior of Labrador is a vast wilderness with recent pockets of modern industrialization in Labrador City, Wabush, Churchill Falls and Happy Valley-Goose Bay. Those who come this way will find an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. There are thousands of pristine lakes teeming with trout, hundreds of rivers that will test your boating skills and kilometre after kilometre of forests and barren ground filled with game. During winter this country is particularly spectacular and there's lots to do — ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and tobogganing, just to name a few.

    Labrador's north coast is undergoing a tremendous change. For much of the past 250 years, European missionaries, fur traders and administrators have dominated the social and economic life of the North Coast, with the aspirations of the aboriginal peoples, the Inuit and Innu, pushed to the background no more. The establishment of aboriginal self-government and the settlement of land claims guarantee they have a major say in social and economic development. The creation of Torngat Mountains National Park, one of the outcomes of the land claims settlement, preserves an important spiritual component of the Inuit homeland.
