Traversed for millennia by different cultural groups, this exceptional territory offers visitors breathtaking peaks and a magnificent river ideal for white-water activities. The Koroc River rises on the Labrador border and flows for 160 km towards Ungava Bay. At 1,646 metres, Mount Kauviik (Mont D'Iberville) dominates the park's territory. From the summit, the scenery is grandiose, and to the east, the view extends as far as the Labrador Sea.
  • Parc national Ulittaniujalik is steeped in thousands of years of captivating history. Pyramid Peak, the park's landmark, boasts ancient shorelines that bear witness to 7,000 years of history. The George River, once witness to the migratory movements of hundreds of thousands of caribou, was also a historic passageway for the Inuit and Naskapi peoples, as well as for explorers and adventurers. Today, it offers fantastic river-rafting opportunities. When it was created in 2016, Parc national Ulittaniujalik became the 2nd largest park in Quebec.
