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.
During your guided tour of the area you may enjoy the following:
- Stroll along the pebbled beach lined with black sand and flat stone. A beach like no other.
- Run your hand across a historical rock of the few lucky adventurers who have graced this part of the world.
- Visit the flowing waterfall and walk behind the powerful water flow.
- Catch a glimpse of caribou, polar bears and many different wildlife.
