Route 138 takes you to the region of Port-Cartier (map)and Sept-Îles, the two largest municipalities on the North Shore, east of Baie-Comeau. This vast area, consisting of the Pointe-aux-Anglais, Rivière-Pentecôte, Gallix, Clarke City, and Moisie areas and the Innu communities of Uashat and Mani-Utenam, offers a wide range of visitor and accommodation services and cultural and outdoor activities.

Long, fine sand beaches line the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and well-known salmon rivers dot the region. Aux Rochers River Park, Patterson Island, McCormick Island, the Port-Cartier–Sept-Îles wildlife reserve, Sept-Îles Archipelago, Grande Basque Island and the Moisie River are idyllic spots that offer camping, hunting, fishing, boating excursions, or hiking. From west to east, you’ll come across numerous museums and interpretation sites tracing the region’s history.
