Trip report: Leaf River, 2022

A solo trip by sea kayak down Nunavik’s Leaf River, involving a trip north along the Hudson Bay coast from Umiujaq and a portage inland to the Leaf’s headwaters of Lake Minto, ending in Tasiujaq 21 days later.

I owe deep thanks to many paddlers whose past experiences were crucial for my planning, especially Lynette Chubb & Laco Kovac, whose 2007 trip report was invaluable, and Al Stirt, who kindly shared the details of his Minto portage route. If you’d like the .kmz file (for Google Earth) of the portage route send me a PM.
