Air Borealis & Nunatsiavut Group of Companies Announce Torngat Mountains Base Camp Will Not Operate in 2020
May 26, 2020 – Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL – Air Borealis and the Nunatsiavut Group of Companies have made the unfortunate decision to suspend operations at the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station (TMBC) for the 2020 season.
The Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station is located on Inuit-owned land adjacent to the southern boundary of the Torngat Mountains National Park.
“The ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis does not allow for camp to operate safely and practically at this time. We are committed to continuing to work with Air Borealis, the Nunatsiavut Group of Companies and Parks Canada towards implementing sustainable, long-term programming that will let visitors, researchers and Labrador Inuit experience our homeland,” says Nunatsiavut’s Minister of Language, Culture and Tourism, Jim Lyall.
Air Borealis and the Nunatsiavut Group of Companies will continue working towards the restart of operations in 2021 through the implementation of a year-round booking system, enhancements to current experience marketing, upgrades to facilities at the site and the development of visitor experiences that will continue to exceed guest expectations.
