The Inuit Story
The remote and wild landscape of Torngat Mountains National Park is an Inuit homeland. Inuit have thrived here for centuries, travelling and hunting with their families along the shores of the Labrador Sea. Today, as evidenced by the mythology of Inuit and a deep sense of spirituality, the relationships between the land, animals, and Inuit still hold strong. The park offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore the deep connections between a place and its people.
