Included: Sheldrake, Magpie, Rivière-Saint-Jean

The communities of Sheldrake, Magpie, and Rivière-Saint-Jean stretch along the shore around the village-relais (service center) of Rivière-au-Tonnerre. Considered one of the North Shore’s most picturesque villages, this municipality is a popular place to relax and unwind.

Fishing, birding, and whale watching from shore or on the water as well as the maritime link with Anticosti Island are the main draws in these coastal villages, typical of the Minganie region.

You’ll find a variety of accommodations, magnificient beaches, rocky trails that are perfect for quadding, local specialty products, and picturesque little churches well worth a detour.
