The business development arm of northern Labrador's Inuit government is hoping to attract more people to Torngat Mountains National Park.

It has developed a number of packages for people who want to visit the rugged and remote area, but none of trips are cheap.

"This is very much geared towards a niche market. We're looking at low-volume, high-yield markets.  Primarily, there's a lot of international interest," said Kristy Sheppard, the director of Nunatsiavut tourism.

The low-end excursions for people who want to camp on their own cost about $2500 per week.

Other packages, which include heated accommodations and helicopter tours, cost up to $6000 per week.
