Torngat Mountains Heli-Hiking picture

The Torngat Mountains National Park offers one of Canada most exciting hiking environments. Here we have a land less travelled, a place at the very northeastern reaches North America. The Inuit of Nunatsiavut and Nunavik have transited this area for thousands of years, and we will explore this spectacular landscape on foot. The land is rich in wildlife and home to polar bears, black bears, caribou, wolves and foxes. We may encounter some of the park’s wildlife throughout our hike, but certainly we will revel in the wildflowers in full bloom. As we complete our trek we will have the opportunity for marine mammal viewing along the mountainous shoreline. A highlight will be our helicopter drop off, where we will have the great privilege of viewing the towering mountains and deep valleys by air. The next week we will traverse this grand land, experiencing the thrill of a climb and the rewards of sweeping vistas.

On this excellent hiking opportunity we anticipate covering 60kms over the course of five days. Our group will be led by head guide Mike Beedell, and accompanied by an experienced Inuit host and bear monitor. Each participant is expected to provide and carry their own gear. Aside from our few meals at camp we will come with our own catered camp food, prepared in advance by a gourmet nutritionist. Some food and camp gear will be distributed amongst the group while hiking.
