One of the best ways to discover the wonders hidden in the fjords of Labrador is to do a scenic float trip on the Hebron River. The Hebron River is a small, serene, winding river with breathtaking scenery. During the descent of 8-10 km along the current we follow the steep cliffs where flow magnificent waterfalls fed by melting snow. Your guide will be happy to make stops at the most beautiful places and to lead you to the most beautiful points of view. In many places on the long bars of alluvial deposits you will see beautiful expanses of wildflowers and arctic plants of all kinds.
The Hebron Valley is also home to tundra dwelling black bears that may be seen feeding on grass or fish during the Arctic char spawning season. Your wildlife guide will be happy to spend enough time at these locations so you can get these great pictures of the incredible black bears in their natural habitat with the beautiful mountain scenery. The Hebron Valley is occasionally visited by caribou that feed on fresh grasses, and like bears their encounters are often unpredictable. An inflatable raft day trip on the scenic Hebron River is a sensational experience in small groups of 4 or 8 people accompanied by your Peninsular Gold guide.
