Vibrant Inuit Culture and Beautiful Arctic

Labrador Inuit through their stories, walk through historic sites
of national significance, taste local wild foods, look for polar
bears, seals, minke whales, and other wildlife, and enjoy many of
the local crafts of the region.
A return trip from Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Nain takes five days

five Nunatsiavut communities along the way. Once you reach Nain,
the ferry will turn around and head back south to Happy
Valley-Goose Bay, spending another 2 ½ days travelling back
south down the coast with stopovers again in each Nunatsiavut
