Photographer's Note

hello to all...Our newest national park takes its name from the Inuktitut word Tongait, meaning place of spirits. It is 9,700 square kilometres of spectacular wilderness stretching north from Saglek Fjord to the northern tip of Labrador, and westward from the Atlantic seacoast to the Quebec border. It's a land of mountains and polar bears, small glaciers and caribou where the Inuit hunt, fish and travel, just as aboriginal peoples have for thousands of years.
Because of its remote location, the park differs greatly from its more accessible cousins in the south. The journey requires careful planning, registration with park officials, and the right equipment. There are no roads, no campgrounds and no signs telling you where to go or what to see. Parks Canada recommends that a visitor engage the services of a trained Inuit polar bear guard when hiking in the park. Parks Canada provides interpretative programs, visitor reception, and orientation services, including safety briefings at the Torngat Mountains Base Camp Saglek Fjord at the southern boundary of the park throughout the summer.
