Immerse yourself in the natural riches of an ancient land, and learn from living relatives how their Inuit and Innu ancestors existed thousands of years ago.
Take to the ocean by boat, breathe in the sea air and glide alongside minke whales and seabirds on your way to visit an island where, for millennia, people wintered in sod huts. Enjoy local foods, from smoked saltwater trout to flummies, otherwise known as trapper’s bread, to cloudberries.
“Our story, who we are today and how we once lived, is our main focus,” says Pete Barrett, who, with her husband George and family, runs the outdoor adventure tour company Experience Labrador.
This ambitious business — which received mention in National Geographic’s “Best Places You Need to Visit 2018” — offers a wide array of packages for travelers.
Pack up your surfboard and gear and surf the Labrador Sea while camping for a night on the Wonderstrands—. 56 kilometers of spectacular sandy beach and part of Labrador’s Akami-Uapishkᵁ-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve. Dig for clams and harvest mussels. Let your guides take care of the rest.
Fish for sea trout. Enjoy a shore mug-up, or lunch, and listen to George’s stories of days gone by.
Join Pete for an “Artventure” and let her show you how to do traditional mat or rug hooking. Fire your own nature-inspired precious metal clay creation while camping on a remote island off the coast. Or, hunker down in Cartwright, book a day in the kayak shack and paint your own silk hoop hangings.
“People ask what is unique about a trip to Labrador and my answer is simple: We are,” says Barrett. “Come visit, and you’ll see what I mean.”
