Discover the best of Labrador on this one (1) day guided tour of the fjords and the Labrador Coast.
Contemplate the natural wonders that make the Golden Peninsula one of the wildest tourist destinations on the planet and enjoy this day to bring back images that will forever be etched in your memory.
To start the day, you will be picked up at Wedge Hills Lodge or at the Arctic Safari Eco-Lodge at 08:30 by the pilot-guide where you will board a comfortable floatplane, equipped with headphones for all passengers. Your pilot-tour-guide will comment on the different stages of the flight by pointing out the most iconic natural sites of the region.
During this flight of approximately three (3) hours you will fly over the mysterious Merewether Crater, the colorful lakes of the Kettles, the Hebron Fjord, and the Iceberg Alley.
You will make the first stop along the Labrador Sea to try to see polar bears in their natural habitat. During this excursion, it is sometimes possible to spot seals, walruses, and even fin whales and orcas, although their presence is more difficult to detect.
We then head to the largest interior fjord in Labrador - Hebron Fjord Lake, where we will make a second stop to discover the hidden treasures of this magnificent interior fjord where there are also impressive waterfalls where it is possible to take fabulous hikes.
At the bottom of the fjord is the highest waterfall in the province of Labrador. The Hebron waterfall impresses with its size, it is double the height of the Eiffel Tower and is over 720 meters high.
Lucky travelers may also see black bear, caribou and seals curious about our presence.
