Duplessis is a coast sprinkled with bays and coves, craggy islets and forests as far as the eye can see. Here, the immensely wide Gulf of St. Lawrence is omnipresent. The salt water is a popular playground for fin, sperm and other whale species! Whale-lovers flock to the St. Lawrence estuary, where a number of different species come to cruise the waters in season. Like a string of pearls, little villages dot the BASSE COTE-NORD. If you're curious to see what lies beyond the end of the road on the lower North Shore, you can easily go coast-hopping by boat. Visit the isolated communities dotted along the coast as far as Labrador. ILE D'ANTICOSTI farther out in the St. Lawrence, is famous for its sea-sculpted coast, its gorges, rushing rivers and caves. Another awe-inspiring sight awaits you in the Archipel de Mingan, with its fascinating monoliths. This reserve is made up of approximately 900 islands and small islands and adds up approximately 175 km of coast to be traversed.
An extraordinary place for deep-sea diving, HARRINGTON HARBOUR village, a fishing port with less than 300 residents, is located on an island near Newfoundland. Charming tiny painted houses and wooden boardwalks stand out against the backdrop of tundra and icebergs. In Sept Iles a particularly pleasant place is the park of the Old man-Quay with its walk on the edge the sea, its cycle track, its marina, its fish shop (a must, and for the amateurs, ask for halibut of marinated Greenland, the winkles and crab of snow). Travel east in Duplessis to NATASHQUAN. Discover authentic Quebec, Quebec out of the beaten paths, Quebec which breathes the adventure, the emotion, and hospitality. Experience nature, traditional ways of life and ancestral cultures, in the company of people of heart.
The Duplessis region is both wild and accessible. Adventure off the Beaten Path!
