Getting around the island

On the day of your arrival, go straight to your place of accommodations. Take advantage of the daylight to travel, as the distances are sometimes long. Be careful on the roads, wildlife is abundant. Your vehicle is equipped with a radio so you can communicate with the Sépaq Anticosti team should the need arise.

You’ll probably find the island to be much bigger than you imagined. To appreciate you stay and to enjoy the beauty and riches of Anticosti nature, make your way to the McDonald or Port-Menier Visitors Centres to better plan your activities and save time when you travel on the island. Don’t worry, it’s impossible to see everything on your first visit.

Play it 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 our territory maps. To read one of our maps using Avenza Maps, download the maps from the Avenza Maps mapstore.
