The Kaumajet Mountains are a dramatic compact mountain range rising 1219 meters / 4000 feet above the Labrador Sea.
The Kaumajet are a true photographer’s paradise. They contain not only the highest island peaks of the east coast of North America, but also extraordinary landscapes. On Cod Island and Grimmington, there are glacial cirques, sharp peaks, dizzying waterfalls, vast outcrops of red-colored volcanic rocks and magnificent beaches of soft, smooth basalt pebbles.
Don’t miss a stop full of discovery at Lost Channel. This site, with landscapes as sublime as they are surreal, is one of the most beautiful and wild on the big Grimmington Island. It is an amazing place for the cliffs plunging steeply into the sea and also a remarkable place to see seals and polar bears which continually roam the area.
The highest peaks on the islands which offer truly remarkable vantage points are Brave Mountain, Bishop’s Miter, Fingers Hill and Table Hill.
