 Arctic Quebec's Masterpiece: The Nastapoka River
Voyageur - Clarion Hotel Sat 4:30pm-5:15pm 
Locate on the Ungava Peninsula in Arctic Quebec, the Nastapoka River tumbles through a remarkable landscape of eskers, canyons, and waterfalls. It's a land and river that's as beautiful as it is harsh. Enticing to anyone looking for a true wilderness canoe adventure! In August/ September, 2022, Pete Marshall and Zach Fritz set out to canoe this remote river. Water levels were high, the portage trails were nonexistent, and they saw the sun for a total of three and a half hours! Hear all the stories about this incredible route that goes through Canada's Tursujuq's National Park, a true gem of a wilderness.
