Tourisme Côte-Nord

A must-see attraction located 30 minutes north of Baie-Comeau. Go North on the 389 road (Trans-Québec_labrador), Manic-2 is a huge hollow-joint gravity dam linked to a generating station powerful enough to supply electricity to a city of 250,000 people. 

Upon arrival, visit the Georges-Dor Pavilion, which was named after the singer/songwriter who wrote and performed the famous “La Manic” song. This reception building welcomes you with a life-size replica of a turbine, an exhibit hall and a multimedia room that explains the construction and operation of a dam. 

Inside the generating station, you can stand beneath a turbine-generator unit and feel its immense power as the 400-tonne structure rotates at a rate of 120 revolutions per minute. Visit the dam to see a hollow joint the size of a Boeing 747. Visit www.hydroquebec.com/visitez for more information.

Please note that it is forbidden to park your recreational vehicle overnight on land owned by Hydro-Québec.
