You don’t have to go round the world to see icebergs and polar bears. The Quebec and Labrador Peninsula situated between the Ungava Bay and the Labrador Sea is one of the best places on earth to photograph gigantic mountains of ice and polar bears in their natural habitats. Icebergs are fully formed works of art sculpted by nature and come in a vast array of shapes due to melting and breaking. Icebergs are any sizes; from “tiny” growlers which are about the size of small cars, to bergy bits which are about the size of a small house, to immense icebergs of all sizes.

The vast majority of the icebergs which we find in the Labrador Sea originate from large chunks of glacier ice break off from the Greenland ice cap. During their 2 to 3 year journey, they will be drifting north into Baffin Bay, to eventually make their way down the Labrador Coast from Davis Strait. The best time to see the icebergs along the Quebec and Labrador Peninsula is between mid-July and mid-August. This is also a great time to see polar bears, seals and whales.

From August 4 – 10th 2015,  we have three (3) places available for the following trips:
