Atsanik, being the Inuit word for northern lights, is truly fitting for NL’s most northerly community. Where the northern lights shine bright, the Atsanik Hotel is located centrally in the community. Guests can enjoy a fully serviced, renovated and refurbished, 26 room hotel with dining and lounge.
Established in 1771 as a Moravian Mission Station, it is the largest community on Labrador’s north coast with a population of approximately 1200 residents.
The community offers many amenities including accommodations, shopping, recreation and cultural facilities.
Nain is also the Administrative capital for the Nunatsiavut Government, home to OKâlaKatiget Society (Nunatsiavut based news agency) and is known as the gateway to the Torngat Mountains.
When you visit Nain, enjoy some time exploring these historically and culturally rich places of interest.
