Nunavik is a vast pristine territory of over 500,000 km2 located above the 55th parallel. Its name means "great land" in the Inuit language. The Torngat Mountains, home of Quebec's highest peak, create a prime habitat for caribou as well as a great challenge for hikers and climbers. Nunavik is also a dream region for hunters and fishers in search of new experiences and a change of scenery, thanks to many outfitters on the land.

Parc national Tursujuq is an adventurer’s playground full of natural treasures. It’s the province’s largest national park, and its vast inland seas are a dream for sea kayakers and canoeists. Created by a double meteorite impact, Lake Wiyâshâkimî is perfect for bird watching – don’t miss the bald eagles! – and its hilly rocky islands offer a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. Fatbikes are a great way to explore the shores. Lake Tasiujaq is another aquatic gem, bordered by towering cliffs called Hudson cuestas. Its brackish tidal waters are a haven for seals and beluga whales.
