Travel north with Great Canadian Wildlife Adventures on our newest wildlife adventure to the deep wilderness of Leaf Inlet in Canada’s Far North! Encounter musk-oxen herds and experience awesome sightings of polar bears along the coastline in Ungava Bay Nunavik!
Soon to become a new National Park, the little-explored and remote wilderness of Leaf Bay Nunavik is hauntingly beautiful, historically significant and wildlife-rich. The skies here are often filled with a variety of seabirds, shorebirds, migratory waterfowl and birds-of-prey. Seals and beluga whales wander up Leaf Inlet from the open sea. Musk-oxen herds range and graze along the shores and hills. Polar bears spend the summertime on the numerous islands in Ungava Bay as they wait for the sea ice to return.
Prehistoric musk-oxen herds roam and graze year-round along the shores on the lush, rolling tundra landscape and semi-mountainous terrain: there are thousands of musk-oxen in dozens of herds in this region along Leaf Bay and the Nunavik coastal plains of Ungava Bay. Herd sizes can range from a single bull to more than 30 animals.
Come travel and explore with us to this magnificent remote wilderness area on a special boating / camping expedition. Over several days we will explore our way up Leaf Bay and into the coastal islands of Ungava Bay Nunavik. We will travel in safety using quality power boats piloted by local Inuit guides who are highly seaworthy and familiar with the area, history, wildlife and tidal fluctuations.
