Kiglapait Mountains circular structure and Labrador coast
Kiglapait Mountains and offshore islands, at the Labrador coast. (Note that the sea appears in three different colors, form south (right) to north (left): white dry ice, wet ice in grey, and open waters with ice debris, in varied deep blue-brown, surrounding the islands.)

The Kiglapait Mountains lie east of Nain, in northern Labrador, south of the Torngat and Kaumajet Mountains. Not as high as those ranges, they still boast very rugged terrain and many peaks with high prominence values. The name means "dog-tooth."
