If a trip to the distant lands of the Far North of Quebec and Labrador already sounds sensational to you, then join a floral excursion on the arctic tundra and live a most exceptional experience.
Over the millennia, the Arctic flora has adopted numerous strategies for survival and for fighting against the cold. Here are some polar plants and their particularities that you will certainly have the chance to observe during your hikes on the Golden Peninsula. One of the most common plant species you will encounter is the arctic willow (Salix Arctica). It is one of the smallest trees in the world and one of the few to withstand the icy and dry climate of the far north. The arctic willow feeds several animals such as musk ox, caribou, arctic hare and lemming.
You will also discover many endemic species: lichens and mosses, ferns, rushes, berries, grasses and many floral varieties. Among them are the rose stonecrop, the great-leaved willowherb, the mountain sorrel, the arctic poppy, multiple orchids and the snow pearlwort. They have developed amazing survival techniques and spread out in magnificent colored carpets – pink, orange, blue, which attract many animals and will enchant lovers of authentic landscapes.
A naturalist guide passionate about Arctic flora will be happy to accompany you on a personalized four (4) hour tour to help you discover the riches of the tundra.
