Tour Labrador in a 7-day / 6-night small-group tour and experience great Labradorian natural sites.
There is so much to see and do to experience the extravagant nature of the far north of Labrador. Whether it's an organized trip in a small group of 4 to 8 people, or a self-guided trip to discover a particular region at your own pace. The trips we offer we have tested them all ourselves and we are here to help you choose the one that suits you best.
The top 5 things to see and do in the far north of Labrador are based on the authenticity of the experience and the feedback we have received from visitors. You will surely find at least one activity that is close to your heart.
Obviously, the top will not be to everyone's taste, but it will still give you a general idea of the places and activities you can do to discover the so-called Golden Peninsula.
Top 5. Moraine Desert Valley
Explore the Moraine Desert Valley with a mountain bike tour of the Torngats Mountains in Labrador. If you have a taste for adventure and spectacular scenery, this two-wheel tour will be for you.
The Moraine Desert Valley is a truly rare region both geologically and aesthetically. The valley is made up of vast fields of amber moraine that formed during the brutal emptying of a supraglacial lake that caused sudden flooding and covered the valley with a thick layer of gravel and sand. This phenomenon occurred during the deglaciation, about 13 thousand years ago.
With its mountains planed by glaciers and its countless fields of moraines, the valley is a true paradise for lovers of fat bikes and mountain bikes.
With its wildlife ubiquitous throughout the summer, you can expect to encounter caribou, bears, wolves and foxes that are not used to fleeing. Pedal to the top of Rusty Mountain and discover the fabulous postglacial landscapes that bear witness to nature resulting from a disproportionate natural disaster.
Do not miss the most remarkable course in the far north of Quebec and Labrador by bike. Helmets and bikes are provided.
Top 4. Ice River
Hiking on a river that looks like a long tongue of ice is a unique experience that we suggest you include in your trip to the Golden Peninsula.
Each year, the Ice River turns into a long tongue of ice to form new crevices, caves and tunnels. Accompanied by an expert guide from the region, you will visit fascinating formations carved out of the thick layer of ice where you will marvel at the astonishing sets of intense blue lights passing through the ice.
On this guided, small-group outing, you'll fly over some of the Golden Peninsula's most beautiful natural sites, such as the mysterious Merewether Crater, colorful Kettle Lakes, Hebron Gorge and numerous leaping waterfalls.
Don't forget your camera, for some people these sites are the most unreal in Labrador.
Top 3. Secret Garden of Monoliths
On the Golden Peninsula hides a region where the geology is extravagant with panoramas that you will not be able to see anywhere else. Welcome to the Secret Garden of Monoliths!
In the heart of the arctic tundra, stand monolithic stone sculptures of the strangest shapes and sizes. Penguin-like rock, giant mushroom, Trolls shoes, bear faces, gourd and many other shapes as unusual as each other.
An excursion in the garden can be done by making an excursion on foot or by mountain bike and if you are fond of camping and large wild spaces, you will be delighted to spend a week in the heart of a wide variety of postglacial landscapes.
This region of Labrador is a must see for anyone looking for an adventure filled with exceptional discoveries.
Top 2. Hebron Fjord
The far north of Labrador is famous for its sumptuous fjords with mountains plunging into the sea. In the fjords of Labrador there are vertiginous waterfalls, deep canyons and breathtaking gorges. An original way to discover the diversity of grandiose landscapes offered by the fjords is to hike at the foot of enormous cliffs, visit dizzying waterfalls and pack raft on a sublime river that flows slowly in a fjord.
Visiting a fjord is always an experience that you will never forget the grandiose landscapes.
Top 1. Iceberg Alley
Any traveler who comes to visit Labrador should definitely see Iceberg Alley, it is a must see Labrador gem. The floatplane ride over Iceberg Alley will leave you speechless with its gigantic icebergs, landscapes of fjords, glaciers and polar bears. To add even more color to this activity we are adding excursions by the sea, with the possibility of seeing polar bears, schools of arctic char, tasting iceberg ice and dipping your feet in the Atlantic.
