Welcome to Rigolet

Welcome to Rigolet, Nunatsiavut, a picturesque town located at the entrance of Hamilton Inlet, on the North Coast of Labrador. Rigolet, an Inuit community with a population of 300, is the southern most Inuit community in the world. It was incorporated in 1977.

During the summer months, one can enjoy a refreshing ride in speedboat on the beautiful waters surrounding Rigolet. Fishing, whale watching or simply riding, it is always a satisfying experience. In August, the annual Salmon Festival offers three days of live entertainment, fun & games and a colossal salmon feast.

Berry picking and leisurely walks on the boardwalk (the longest boardwalk in North America) are enjoyed by all during the summer and fall. Hunting for ducks and geese is a traditional activity which many people enjoy during this time of year.

With the first snowfall of winter comes the excitement of one of the most enjoyable seasons in Labrador. Snowmobile riding, dog sledding, ice fishing and snowshoeing are a few of the activities enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

Spring brings with it long days of sunshine and beautiful, warm weather for more snowmobile riding and ice fishing. The annual Tikigiaksaugusik Cultural Festival is a time for all to experience dog team racing, traditional outdoor activities as well as a community feast and the ever popular square dancing. Seal hunting 'up on the bay' is another traditional activity which many residents of Rigolet still partake in and is anticipated all winter long.

Summer, fall, winter, or spring, there is always something enjoyable to do in Rigolet.

Exquisite scenery, along with a warm-hearted community equals an incredible place to live and/or visit!

We look forward to seeing you!
