Torngat Mountains are a famous mountain range located on Labrador Peninsula at the northern point of Newfoundland, Labrador and eastern Quebec. The mountains are part of Arctic Cordillera. Torngat Mountains form a peninsula which separates Ungava Bay from Atlantic Ocean. They cover 30,067 km2 (11,609 ml2), including lowland regions and extend more than 300 km (186 ml) from Cape Chidley located in the north to Hebron Fjord located in the south.
- The mountains feature a substantial geographical extent. Around 56% of the range is situated in Quebec, 44% in Labrador, and the remainder, which is less than 1%, lies on Killiniq Island, Nunavut. At least 2% of Torngat Mountains chain is under water, poorly surveyed.
- Torngat Mountains boast the highest peaks found in eastern continental Canada. Their highest point is Mount Caubvick (Mont D'Iberville) at 1,652 m (5,420 ft). The mountains have no trees as they lie in arctic tundra climate and are above the tree line.
- Permafrost is continuous on border's Quebec side, and discontinuous and extensive on the eastern Atlantic side. This terrain is predominantly rocky desert and is situated more than 300 m (984 ft) above sea level.
- The ranges of Torngat Mountains are divided via finger lakes and deep fjords surrounded by vertical rock walls. The fjords were created through glaciation. At least once most of the mountains were covered by laurentide ice sheet. However during the last ice age such a coverage was more limited.
- Today, there are more than a hundred active mountain glaciers in Torngat Mountains with a total of around 195 ice masses in the whole area.
- The name Torngat derives from the Inuktitut word meaning "place of spirits", occasionally interpreted as evil spirits' place.
- Torngat Mountains National Park Reserve was announced on December 1, 2005. It aims to protect wildlife, while providing recreational and wilderness-oriented activities.
