The Inuit of Nunavik and Nunatsiavut play a key role as partners in the management of Torngat Mountains National Park.
Many see the park as a portal for a better understanding of Inuit culture. The word Torngat is derived from the Inuttut word tongait, meaning "place of spirits," where Inuit shamans traveled to connect with higher powers. It is not hard, even for a visitor, to feel the power of the place.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
