From September onwards, Nunavik’s tundra and taiga landscapes take on a striking palette of colours ranging from bright red to blazing orange, on land and in the sky. It’s the perfect time to go hiking, watch amazing sunsets painted across the sky and pick colourful wild berries to the soothing murmur of rivers and the song of migratory birds. The northern lights also begin to illuminate the nights in shades of purple, blue and green, adding a touch of magic to this time of year. A trip to admire the fall colours of Nunavik is a unique precursor to reconnecting with nature and soaking up the beauty of this northern region.
