Fish the Migratory Arctic Char

The East Ungava Bay region offers some of the most incredible Arctic char fishing in Canada. Arctic char in these waters are generally enormous. The middleweight of chars is 10 pounds / 5 kg and sometimes trophies push the balance to 15 pounds / 7 kg and even more. Monsters chars of 20 pounds / 10 kg and more have already been taken and released. Up here the only human presence is yours…! The access to our rivers is done by floatplane and very days you will be alone to fish with your group of friends and the pilot-guide. Fly-fishing in Arctic Quebec is as good as it gets and anyone who enjoys fly-fishing should make this trip at least once.

Set Foot on Land’s End

Sometimes we say that we are going at the end of the world. We can leave far, certainly, but where is the real end of the world? For those who take literally the words, here is a suggestion of a trip to reach the end of the world, the true. At 2000 kilometers from Montreal, Killineq at the northeast extremity of North America is one of the most isolated region on the North American continent. There are no roads that connects Killineq / Land’s End with the rest of Canada, you have to take a plane! It is one of the regions of the world where the nature is intact and at its most spectacular: it is the kingdom of the largest land carnivore on earth – the polar bear, the seals are counted by the thousands, icebergs by the hundreds … Useless to say that it is so beautiful that it’s jaw dropping.
