Weekends in the Parks are BackWeekends in the Parks are Back5/20/2016 4:00:00 AM

Weekends in the Parks are for those who dream of experiencing the region's spectacular national parks, from outdoor enthusiasts seeking their next new adventure to family and friends looking for a great way to spend time together. Weekends in the Parks will provide you with extraordinary experiences. They are a wonderful opportunity to easily discover the immense territories protecting the natural features, landscapes and wildlife of Nunavik. The pristine waters of Lake Pingualuk and its circular crater, the valley of the Koroc River in the Torngat Mountains, the diverse plants and wildlife of Lake Tasiujaq, and the powerful Nastapoka Falls are but a few examples.

 

"Nunavik is a huge territory and we are always looking for a chance to explore it more. These weekends are a great opportunity for Nunavimmiut to discover the region and be proud of it. Park staff were really committed. It warms the heart to see all the work that has been accomplished on the land: the cabins, the trails, the equipment, the logistics… I will want to go back."

JBNQA beneficiary after his excursion at Pingualuit, 2015

 

Activities: fishing, hiking, canoeing and kayaking, trekking expeditions, plant and wildlife observation, traditional tent accommodations, relaxation next to a lake and cabin.

The Kativik regional Administration (KRG) and Nunavik Parks are pleased to announce they are following up on last summer's unequivocal success with 13 more summer weekend discovery packages in 2016. The goal of this innovative project is to encourage Nunavimmiut to experience the magic of the region's parks. Last summer, a nine-weekend pilot project was organized and permitted Nunavik residents to live unforgettable moments in some very unique environments.
