Each summer, on the banks of a beach where a river meets a sea, a small community is established on the edge of Torngat Mountains National Park in Northern Labrador. Inuit elders and youth from Nunatsiavut and Nunavik come together here with visitors, researchers and Parks Canada staff to share adventures and connect with their Inuit homeland. This is Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station, ideally situated for anyone wanting to explore this unique and special landscape and experience the rhythm of a traditional Inuit way of life.

I gave a review of Torngat National Park which you should also read mine and other reviews (as well as other great places) so I won't go into the park so much. Base camp houses a research station as well as Parks Canada staff, bear guards, guides, and the Base Camp staff. There's lots of activities on the go all day and night, with hiking trails which range from easy to fairly difficult uphill hikes. There's zodiac tours daily, weather permitting, as well as occasional long liner trips to Hebron or Rose Island etc. If you're paying for packages from Goose bay with multi day stays, I would throw in the extra fees for the upgrade package that includes a quick helicopter tour and a trip to Hebron or ramah etc (plus the zodiac excursions). Here's my comparison - it's like going to a safari base camp, but not really ever going on safari. why pay a lot of money for some of the experience when you can pay a little bit more for all of it! Seriously though, you will end up wanting to go on all the excursions when you hear the stories and see the pictures from the other visitors, So I said the staff were amazing right? they are. talk to them, they have ALL the stories. I have to say however, that with $600 a night you really have to curb your expectations. The tents and domes are quite nice, but there's no washrooms in each. showers and toilets are in a separate building. so this is Glamping really. This is to be expected, this is a difficult place to bring in mass quantities of supplies. the common area has Wifi, and coffee and treats as well as three meals a day. They also try very hard to have musicians on site (like actual known bands etc) During our time we passed a band on their way out, but we had the treat of two wonderful Inuit from Kuujjuaq who did a throat singing and cultural sharing night while we were there. I was disappointed with the food. and I'm used to living off the land, and traveling to some pretty far flung and rustic places on the globe. so for $600 a night, yes some of the excursions do include baloney sandwiches, so expect that. I was hoping for more Arctic Char and locally sourced foods, since, well, you can catch them right there on the beach. (yes even you can borrow one of the rods and go catch a nice fish!) this was mostly disappointing to me because the price difference in processed foods versus "good" foods so far away from shopping centres isn't the price difference in buying them, but in shipping them. So the price difference between boloney sandwiches and smoked brisket sandwiches is marginal, especially at $600 a day. ANYWAY, not a big deal, and it's all a very minor issue compared the the incredible life changing experience that is the Torngats, and the wonderful experience brought to you by the staff!! All to say, Amazing and helpful staff, a little rustic on accommodations (still fancier than I had growing up out on the land haha), but all of that is just icing on the cake of your Torngat Mountain National Park Experience!!!

The Base Camp and Research station is very unique with its bubble type accommodation units. The hikes in and around the base came are beautiful from easy to challenging. We met many locals who welcomed us to their community. A Bear Monitor is essential for hiking in this area. Not an area that is easily accessible. We traveled with Adventure Canada on the Ocean Endeavour expedition ship.

This was the most incredible experiences so have bee had. The power of the land, abundance of wildlife and authentic Indigenous culture has left me a lifetime of memories in only 4 short days. This is the last place on earth you will ever see such raw land and ocean, I can't say enough.

11 days was not long enough in this part of the world! The Torngat Mountains National Park is spectacular. Torngats Base Camp is a treat. They keep you busy, introduce you to so many new experiences and the people are gorgeously warm and inviting but if you want to chill and do nothing, you can do that too. It is so worth the time and dollars to experience such a place. Thanks Torngats Base Camp crew and Angus Simpson our guide from Linkum Tours and a special thanks to Boonie our bear guide for keeping us all safe!

Inuit elders and youth from Nunatsiavut and Nunavik come together here with visitors, researchers and Parks Canada staff to share adventures and connect with their Inuit homeland. I stayed a week. 5 nights in the Base Camp and 2 nights in a satellite camp. Tour arranged through Linkum tours http://www.linkumtours.com/site/index.htm and the wonderful Angus Simpson. Totally off the grid. A very deep and unique experience. You are not a tourist. You join a community. Learn by experiencing the land and culture. The people, their stories, the animals,the flora. Fish for char, swim in glacial streams, dance to an accordion, compete in Innuit games, eat seal. Watch the moon rise. Go. Just go.
