Welcome to Nunavik!

Quebec’s Far North

Stretching above the 55th parallel, Nunavik is the northernmost region of Quebec. This 507,000 km2 pristine expanse of land — bordered by Hudson Bay to the west, Hudson Strait to the north, Ungava Bay and Labrador to the east — makes up one third of the province and is almost equal to the size of France. Presenting a remarkable display of truly wild tundra, taiga forest, scenic mountains, untamed rivers and countless lakes, this unspoiled region is the ideal playground for nature lovers in search of a true adventure.

Spectacular National Parks

Host to four of the most spectacular national parks in Quebec, Nunavik shelters true gems of nature that are sure to delight fans of the great outdoors, whether hiking or even mountaineering, sea kayaking or white water rafting, backcountry skiing or snowshoeing. The Pingualuit National Park is home to the famous crater bearing the same name, a perfectly circular lake within the walls of an ancient meteorite strike, now filled with one of the purest water in the world. The Kuururjuaq National Park boasts the highest peaks of Quebec, the mythical Torngat Mountains — also the highest in North America, east of the Rockies, through which flows the majestic Koroc River, following an ancient Inuit route leading to Ungava Bay. The Tursujuq National Park is the province’s biggest national park, covering 26,107 km2 where inland seas bathe amongst spectacular cuestas reminiscent of the Far West. Last but not least, the Ulittaniujalik National Park is the perfect excuse to embark on a canoe-camping expedition down the legendary George River and take in the views on a hike up the park’s iconic Pyramid mountain.

Fantastic Arctic Wildlife

Nunavik is also the realm of a fantastic Arctic wildlife, on which rules the revered polar bear, a truly remarkable marine mammal that can be observed in its natural coastal habitat. It is also possible to bear witness the great caribou migration of one of the largest herds in the world. Exclusive encounters with the musk ox, a prehistoric specimen straight out of the Ice Age, as well as with other members of the Arctic fauna, such as the elusive tundra wolves and Arctic fox, are also amongst the highlights of a journey to Nunavik, not to mention a number of marine mammals and migratory birds. All incredible species that can be captured on camera with the help of your knowledgeable guides.
