Trek above the Hebron Fjords in Labrador

Trek above the Hebron Fjords in Labrador

Hike above the largest inland fjord in the Torngat Mountains and discover some of the finest views of Labrador fjords. With this package, you will take a 5-day guided trek in a small group from a fixed bivouac where you will embark on different circuits in loops over the inner fjord of Hebron. There are few places in the world where it is possible to hike several kilometers over a fjord with such a diversity of landscapes and contrasts.

The Hebron Fjord and its inland lake stretch for more than 70 kilometers, and its mountains have vertiginous walls that rise up to 800 meters above the sea. We can clearly state that there are many trails that will surprise you in the coming days! From the heights of the cliffs, Hebron's North Crest Trail crosses several extraordinary panoramic views - lakes, deltas, rivers, cascades, waterfalls, gorges, snow tongues, ancient glacial valley and 360-degree peaks.

Under the sun, the colors come alive on the fjord and create beautiful color contrasts. Early in the morning the limpid water of the fjord oscillates between turquoise and deep blue, while at the end of the day the angle of the sun on the vegetation at the foot of the cliffs exhibits different shades of green as the jagged ridges take some amber hues. Walking on the summit of Hebron Fjord is an unforgettable experience. Looking out onto the fjord from the huge cliffs high above is a view you will not soon forget.

The North Crest Trail is quite easy for trekkers and offers different circuit loops depending on your interest in landscapes, wildlife and Arctic flora. Throughout your trek you will be accompanied by a professional, experienced guide, who will ensure that you experience the best of what the region has to offer in order to take home unforgettable memories. All you need is a small backpack for the day.

If you are in good physical condition, and want to make the most of the extraordinary beauty of the landscapes of the Golden Peninsula, then this trip is guaranteed to please you. To make this trip even more special, you will also receive a ticket for a scenic floatplane flight over Labrador's largest inland fjord.

Once your package is booked, we will prepare your trip and send you your travel documents by email.
