The haunting beauty of our province is truly something to behold. If you're serious about hiking, and I mean Gore-Tex serious, this is the article for you. When it comes to Quebec hikes, there are some spots where few humans tread. Where the rhythms of nature (not your smartphone) hold sway over your appointments, where there are no paved roads, no busy streets, no honking horns, no smoggy skies, no nothing.\nJust thousands of square kilometres of pristine wilderness where you can have a truly unique experience, and we're here to let you know where those are.\nHiking in these parts can mean serious trekking – spiritual journeying if you will – not for the faint of heart.\nThere won't be a lot of fancy restaurants or hotels where you're going. It'll be sleeping on the land, under the stars, thousands of kilometres from civilization for you, so you'll have to plan properly and bring the appropriate gear but that's all part of the fun.\nYou'll see, as you make these journeys, that the priorities of life will come into sharp focus and the mundane worries of your life will melt away.\nPingualuit National Park\nView this post on Instagram #Quebec / trek in #Pingualuit national park / Trek dans le Parc National de Pingualuit #Nunavik Credit photo : TQ, Heïko Wittenborn A post shared by Grégory rohart (@itrekkings) on May 18, 2016 at 11:22pm PDT\nPingualuit National Park is a massive provincial park located in the Ungava Peninsula.
