Torngat Mountains National Park is a mysteriously beautiful landscape reminiscent of Earth a million years ago. It takes its name from the Inuktitut word ‘Tongait’, meaning place of spirits. It is 9,700 square kilometers of spectacular wilderness, a land of mountains and polar bears, small glaciers, and caribou, where the Inuit hunt, fish, and travel, as their predecessors did for thousands of years. The Torngat Mountains are also home to some rock formations about 3.92 billion years old, making them the second oldest in the world! Over the next two days, you’ll explore the deep fjords and channels by ship, Zodiac cruising through some of the most spectacular and dramatic landscapes found anywhere in the world, and getting out for hikes, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites. Weather conditions and tides will determine your itinerary and landings during your time exploring Torngat Mountains National Park. You may sail through Eclipse Channel or Nachvak Fjord, a deep and narrow fjord stretching more than 20 kilometers with rocky walls of the fjord soaring almost 900 meters above at several points. Around the southern part of the national park in places such as Saglek Fjord, and attempt look for polar bears roaming the rocky shores of the outlying islands of the park on their hunt for food. Autumn brings shorter days and when the sun goes down, look up. Chances are, you’ll see something to take your breath away – bright green ribbons of light dancing and swirling across the night sky. You are in the zone of the Aurora Borealis. Brilliant, exhilarating and utterly unforgettable, the Northern Lights are the crowning glory to the dramatically beautiful Torngats.
