Getting around the island

The day after your arrival, you’ll be offered e-bikes and fatbikes to discover the attractions surrounding the village. These points of interest are located at a distance varying from 25 to 40 km round trip on a forest road. Safety helmets are also provided free of charge.

You can also rent a vehicle* to check out the island. Vehicles can be booked on site only. The rental cost is $150/day (plus taxes) and gasoline fee applies (approximately $125). Take advantage of daylight to travel; distances on Anticosti are sometimes vast. Be careful when driving on island roads; Anticosti is teeming with wildlife.

*Check with your insurance broker to find out if you have Q.E.F. 27. Each driver must provide a photocopy of this proof of insurance.

Be smart and download your maps in advance, as the cellular network is not available everywhere on the island:

Note that the Avenza Maps allows you to geotag your location on the territory maps. To read one of our maps using Avenza Maps, download the maps from the Avenza Maps mapstore.


Delicious meals are included in your package and served at the inn, which includes a large dining room with a fireplace and a terrace overlooking the bay. Box lunches for your daily excursions will be prepared at no extra charge.
