The Minganie Region, GENEROUS BY NATURE...
The Minganie region of Québec is worth the detour. This vast territory spans 360 km of coastline stretching from the Natashquan river to the east and the Au Bouleau river to the west. It is also home to the majestic Anticosti island, which is peacefully nestled in the Saint-Lawrence away from the shores of this North Shore region.

Finding attractions that are uncommon is actually a fairly common experience in a territory as vast and unique as the Minganie region. You'll discover wondrously beautiful landscape, numerous lakes, rivers, islands, and backcountry so out of the ordinary you will enjoy countless leisurely or relaxing activities.

The most popular sites obviously include the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve and the Anticosti national park, veritable Canadian and Québec gems. In fact, the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve has been justifiably named the North Shore's undisputed star tourist attraction.

The Minganie region also abounds with natural, social and cultural wealth. It encompasses 10 villages, including two Innu Communities, and one centrally located town, Havre-Saint-Pierre, whose Acadian roots are palpable in the peculiar accent of its inhabitants, who refer to themselves as «Cayens» Each place will charm you in its own way through its genuine character, the friendliness of its inhabitants, and the overall social and cultural traits that typically define the people of the Minganie region.
