Torngat Mountains National Park

Newfoundland and Labrador

Take the Scottish highlands, add Inuit locals and polar bears, and you have Torngat. Corralled by the Saglek Fjord in the south, Quebec in the west, and the iceberg-choked Labrador Sea to the east, this park has Canada's highest mainland mountains east of the Rockies, where polar bears hunt seals in the shadow of remnant glaciers and caribou herds cross the park to and from their calving grounds.

Getting There

Fly to Nain, then take an air or boat charter north into the park.
