Day 7 – Torngat Mountains

Polar bears, caribou and whales…what a way to start the morning as we approach the Majestic Fjords of the Incredible Torngat Mountains National Park.  Photos cannot do these ancient glacier carved mountains justice.  Our first glimpse of the park sailing in on the Ioffe, just breathtaking! The park was established in 2005 and covers almost 10,000 sq kilometers of Northern Labrador. You can understand why we were exploring  such untouched land while hiking.

These mountains represent a very spiritual connection to the Inuit spirit world. Inuit continue to use this area for hunting and fishing and travel throughout the park during the year.

And to top the day off, we finished with a BBQ on the stern while watching the sun set behind us!
