Traveling By Air
Connecting flights from any of the major airlines will bring you to the Wabush Airport in Labrador from virtually anywhere in the world, and can be arranged through your local travel agent. The majority of our guests make a connecting flight in Montreal via Air Canada and Provincail Airlines. If traveling by road, Route 389 will bring you from Baie Comeau-Quebec into Labrador West. This partly paved road is 581km, and will take you over the Manic Five Dam; the largest arch and buttress dam in the world.
Labrador summers are short and generally cooler, but extreme high temperatures are not uncommon. Summer temperatures range from 10 - 25 degrees Celsius (50 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit), and tend to be much colder than that of the island portion. Winter temperatures range from -10 to -30 degrees Celsius (14 to -22 degrees Fahrenheit).
Each guest is allowed a baggage weight of 45lb for the floatplane. Excess baggage may well mean being without some items until alternate flights are organized with additional costs.
A 30% non-refundable deposit is required on all packages. Deposit must be received no later than 2 weeks after your booking.
A harmonized sales tax of 15% is applicable on all packages and license.
