Moraine Desert Valley (2 Days)
Explore the Moraine Desert Valley with a mountain bike tour of the Torngats Mountains in Labrador. If you have a taste for adventure and spectacular scenery, this two-wheel tour will be for you.
The Moraine Desert Valley is a truly rare region both geologically and aesthetically. The valley is made up of vast fields of amber moraine that formed during the brutal emptying of a supraglacial lake that caused sudden flooding and covered the valley with a thick layer of gravel and sand. This phenomenon occurred during the deglaciation, about 13 thousand years ago. With its mountains planed by glaciers and its countless fields of moraines, the valley is a true paradise for lovers of fat bikes and mountain bikes.
With its wildlife ubiquitous throughout the summer, you can expect to encounter caribou, bears, wolves and foxes that are not used to human presence allowing for unprecidented observation. Pedal to the top of Rusty Mountain and discover the fabulous postglacial landscapes resulting from a disproportionate natural disaster.
