The glaciers have hewn through the crest of the mountains to create gigantic oceanic fjords. The rivers erosive force has formed the extraordinary canyons and the continents collisions have heaved and folded the Labrador coast to expose the earth geology like an open notebook on the Quaternary Era.

Self-guided backpacking in the Torngat Mountains

These self-guided expeditions include your flight from Montreal to a modern lodge in Ungava Bay in northern Quebec. From here you will have the help and expertise of the staff at the lodge to carefully plan your adventure. You choose your own route and the lodge will arrange the logistics such as drop off and pick up locations and food drops. Scheduled radio communication with the lodge will help to ensure a safe journey. There are several route options to choose from. You may decide to spend your entire time hiking along the Labardor Coast. This coast is a land where polar bears, whales and falcon thrive. Hiking along the coast you will watch the caribou from close up and see distant massive icebergs. You will discover a coast carved by ancient glaciers, passing beautiful sights such as Murphy Head and Whale Island. Following the shore of Kangalaksiorvik Fjord, you will discover some Thule campsites thousands of years old. Reaching Kangalaksiorvik Upper Lake, you will have the chance to observe a rare species of fresh water seal. Your exploration can be pushed even further by climbing Tower Mountain to revel in the magnificent panorama. For the adventurous paddler, you can combine hiking with an exploration of Nachvak Fjord by kayak or canoe. Or, for the avid mountain climber, the Torngat Mountains provide the challenge enjoyed by internationally experienced climbers. The Torngats are totally barren and some of the peaks even harbour small glaciers. Among the tallest peaks are Mount D'Iberville (5400 ft), Cirque Mountains (5100 ft) and Mount Cladonia (4700 ft). The choice is up to you and the goal is to provide you with professional services and expertise to make your ideal expedition a reality.
