Located in the East Coast Boreal Natural Region of Parks Canada’s world-class system of national parks, Akami-Uapishkᵁ-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve will protect approximately 10,700 square kilometres of a stunning array of pristine landscapes, vegetation and wildlife. Canada’s newest and 46th national park will protect cultural landscapes of importance to Innu, Inuit, and other people in the region.
One of the focal points of the national park reserve is the Mealy Mountains themselves. From their rugged peaks a lush forested landscape gently descends eastwards towards the coast until it meets the frigid waters of the Labrador Sea. This is a landscape of undisturbed watersheds and pristine wild rivers with breathtaking rapids and waterfalls.
