Presentation

The Havre-Saint-Pierre port of call welcomes you to its chain or islands and islets whose beauty will take your breath away. The Mingan Archipelago will inspire you with its mysteriously-shaped and unique monoliths. You are sure to be charmed by the unique accent that is characteristic of the region, and which eloquently speaks of its Acadian roots.

Discover the heart of a gem!

Discover the Minganie, a long littoral measuring some 360 km including a dozen picturesque villages and one town, Havre-Saint-Pierre. This municipality of 3,300 residents was founded in 1857 by six fishing families from the Îles de la Madeleine. After depending on fishing for many decades, in 1948 the village was industrialized with the operation of the biggest solid ilmenite deposits in the world located 43 km north of the community.  In 1984, Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada came into being, resulting in the diversification of the local economy and the development of a regional tourist industry. Charm and authenticity await you.

Bustling with adventure tourism, vast nature, hunting, and fishing, you will fall in love with Minganie. Take in the unique spirit of the region by taking a drive along the 138, which sidles the ocean, and which takes you across plains, marshes, rivers, lakes, and forests to pretty hamlets that are thriving with North Shore life!

Explore Anticosti, the legendary island where the deer are king, and its national park, which bears the same name! Immerse yourself in the Innu culture of the Ekuanitshit and Nutakuan communities, which reflect the lives of Aboriginals in Canada. Enjoy strolling along one of the region's magnificent fine sand beaches. Enjoy the late afternoon bustle as the fishing boats dock. And what can be said about the back-country, which holds incomparable treasures!
