Parc national Tursujuq

On the eastern coast of Hudson Bay not far from the Inuit community of Umiujaq, this park covers a phenomenal 26,107 square kilometres and includes many exceptional attractions.

The Lac Guillaume-Delisle, for example, with its brackish tidal waters is a summer playground for seals and belugas. Adjacent to the lake –sometimes called Richmond Gulf– are the unusual but well-known Hudsonian cuestas. For their part, the two circular basins of Lac à l’Eau-Claire in the eastern part of the park territory are the result of a double meteoritic impact.

With a surface area of 1,211 square kilometres, the two basins combine to form the second largest natural lake in Québec.

The Parc national Tursujuq is moreover located in the transition zone between boreal forest and tundra and possesses vestiges of human occupation dating back more than 3,000 years, including former trading posts from the 18th and 19th centuries.
