Torngat Mountains National Park is the traditional homeland of the Inuit of Labrador and Nunavik. Inuit have travelled and lived among the deep fjords, towering mountains and wide valleys of this land for centuries, following the migratory paths of the whale, polar bear, and caribou.
Visitors to the park have the opportunity to experience this breath-taking landscape together with Inuit. Excursions into the park by air, by sea or on foot deepen visitors’ understanding of the connections between the majestic wild nature of this special place and the enduring cultural traditions of its people.
Each summer, on the banks of a beach where a river meets a sea, a small community is established on the edge of the park. This is Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station. Here, Inuit elders and youth from Nunatsiavut and Nunavik stay together with visitors, researchers, and Parks Canada staff. In addition to the daily excursions to the park and programming offered at “base camp,” Parks Canada facilitates opportunities for shared experiences between all guests, inspiring profound personal experiences.
