The Northern adventure

Experience the immensity of the north: Nunavik’s three main salmon rivers cross the lichen-sprinkled tundra, winding their way between hills shaped by glaciers into Ungava Bay. These rivers are virtually unspoiled and provide tremendous fishing opportunities. The sheer force of the salmon found here is commensurate with the size of the land which they are from—an area of more than 500,000 square kilometers—making it an outstanding place to fish.

These rivers flow for many dozens, sometimes even hundreds of kilometers. Therefore, the fish are strong and robust enough to cover such distances, especially given that they are used to navigate the harsh waters between Greenland and Labrador. The rivers of Nunavik are uniquely beautiful, not to mention the scenery itself. From the taiga to the tundra, the vegetation becomes more and more reminiscent of the arctic. The coniferous forests give way to a variety of moss plants and tiny brightly colored flowers. At night, the endless sky may reveal its awe-inspiring northern lights.

The salmon rivers of Nunavik can only be reached by plane. In order to get there, you will need to fly in from one of the province’s major center. Once you get there, you will find that the food and lodging services are just as good, if not better, than any five-star hotel.
