Visiting Torngat National Park

I am fortunate to have been invited by Parks Canada to visit Torngat National Park in northern Labrador later next week. We’ll be looking at strategies to encourage visitation to the park.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I see Labrador as one of Canada’s hot new destinations. From the research that I have done so far, it looks like I’m not far off. While the Yukon and NWT are reasonably well-known and well-visited, and there are still several operators who organize trips to Nunavut, hardly anyone goes to Labrador. The entire region appears to be more remote and wild than just about any other place in the country. Getting there is an adventure in itself…

I plan to take the Northern Ranger back from Nain to Goose Bay, stopping by all the coastal communities. Hopefully I’ll return with an armload full of new experiences.
