About the Labrador Region

Labrador Region Map 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.

The southeast coast, with its once-vibrant whale and fishing industries, is now home to many popular tourism destinations. 16th-century Basque whalers established a centre of commerce at Red Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while further east Battle Harbour is now a rejuvenating retreat from the modern world. Point Amour’s lighthouse, the tallest in Atlantic Canada, offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding land and sea.

A pristine paradise for sport fishermen and hunters, Labrador is home to the best brook trout angling on the planet, and you can expect trophy-sized catches. To increase your chances, there are plenty of experienced and resourceful outfitters.

Under a blanket of magical northern lights, the winter months bring with them the hum of a thousand snowmobiles carving through the wilderness. And the quieter winter pursuits, like skiing and ice fishing, are always good for body and soul.

Torngat Mountains National Park is a mysteriously beautiful landscape reminiscent of Earth a million years ago. 
This is where outdoor aficionados can indulge their passion, with 9,700 square kilometres to hike. You’ll find an abundance of wildlife, including polar bears.

Expedition 51°: Travelling the Québec-Labrador Highway

Labrador is one of the last untouched frontiers on the planet. Its landscape is dotted by ponds and lakes, teems with roaring rivers, and is covered with dense, boreal forests. It's a land where travel can take many forms with some settlements only accessible by ice, water, or air. In fact, it's only been less than twenty years since the first portion of the Trans-Labrador Highway was completed. Today this looped route runs from the border of Québec at Labrador City to the Atlantic Ocean, tracing the coast back to the southern Québec border. Recently renamed Expedition 51, this highway is a thoroughfare for the adventurer. And the truly adventurous will want to drive every last kilometre; right through the heart of the Big Land.
