Torngat Mountains National Park
A sharply pointed wedge at continental Canada’s northernmost tip, Torngat Mountains National Park covers 9,700 square kilometres (3,745 square miles) between Northern Québec and the Labrador Sea.
The park is accessible only by boat, charter plane, or helicopter during the summer. If you wish to access the Park via chartered plane or helicopter then the airline company or personal aircraft owner must apply for a landing permit. Experienced independent travellers are welcome, although most visitors stay within the bear-fence-enclosed Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station located outside the park on Saglek Fjord, camping in comfortable tent-style accommodations and joining day- or multi-day cultural and natural excursions with Inuit guides.
Charter flights to the park are available from both Goose Bay, Labrador and Kuujjuaq in Nunavik (Quebec). Contact the Parks Canada office in Nain for information about park access options and visit the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station website.
All visitors must obtain park use permits, register with Parks Canada, and undergo an orientation before setting off on independent treks or boat trips in the park, or alternatively, be a guest of the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station operator.
Inuit have lived here for centuries and still fish and hunt across the wide tundra valleys where Arctic creatures roam. Remote, stark, and dramatically beautiful, the park is a rare place to meet and spend time with Inuit in their homeland.
