There is simply nothing on earth comparable to a Torngat Mountain Adventure.
Located just south of Torngat Mountains Base Camp, the community of Hebron was first settled by Moravian Missionaries, in 1830. Now a National Historic Site, this once-thriving and beloved Inuit settlement has a richly storied past of both triumph and tragedy, that will touch your heart.
A trip to Hebron can be either a full day or an overnight trip.
You can get to Hebron from Base Camp a variety of ways:
- By passenger boat/long liner the voyage is approximately 3 hours, one way
- By Zodiac (when the seas are calm) the voyage is approximately 1.5 hours, one way
- Flying time by helicopter is 15 minutes, one way
Idyllic North Arm is considered one of the jewels of Torngat Mountains National Park. Your boat voyage will take you through majestic Saglek Fjord’s 3000 foot verticals, to the remnants of an ancient Inuit village. Visitors interested in an easy, scenic hike will delight in a secluded and pristine sandy beach with an incredible indigo-blue lake and waterfall.
Sallikuluk (Rose Island)
An important focal point of the Inuit cultural landscape, Sallikuluk features deeply layered archaeological sites spanning 5,000 years of human history. Sod house villages, burial sites and hunting grounds are dwarfed by the spectacular mountain backdrop. The perfect setting to hear some of the most important stories of the Inuit people and to comprehend our great spiritual association with the land.
North of the Saglek Fjord, this spectacular journey highlights the beginning of a 100-year old Inuit trail. A short hike brings you to a towering Inukshuk which marks the area. Walk and chat with local residents who were born here, and you’re very likely to catch a glimpse of black bears fishing or wolves scavenging along the banks of the rich fishing grounds.
Once the home of a small Moravian mission, Ramah is one of the most significant historical sites in Northern Labrador. It is the only known source of a semi-translucent form of chert – a stone of great spiritual and economic value that was used for precision tool-making as early as 7,500 years ago. Its discovery among remnants of many distinct aboriginal cultures provides valuable information about the trade and travel of ancient North American peoples.
