Included: Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan

With its multitude of islands and islets stretching over 150 km of coastline and its impressive limestone monoliths, the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve has been attracting visitors to Havre-Saint-Pierre (map) and the surrounding area for many years. 

From Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan eastward along the shore, boat operators and visitor and interpretation centers provide information about maritime transportation services and activities available in the area, including excursions and camping on the islands, hiking, birding, and whale watching.

Located at the confluence of the Mingan River and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Innu community of Mingan invites you to discover a thousand-year-old culture through its art, handcrafts, and traditions. In the heart of the taiga at the eastern end of this area lies the small village of Baie-Johan-Beetz, renowned for salmon fishing and its outstanding marine environment. Featuring wide open spaces and stunning coastal scenery, this is the perfect escape!
