What to do in Port-Menier sector

Village de Port-Menier

Cultural visit to the village of Port-Menier

On foot or by electric bike, discover the island's history at the Anticosti ecomuseum, continue on to the Château Menier site, then stop off at the Sorcier Gamache tombstone before heading for the picturesque streets of Cap-Blanc.


Anse-aux-Fraises

Discover Anse-aux-Fraises sector

Explore this exceptional fossil zone: the 445-million-year-old stone provides a glimpse of the first mass extinction and the life that returned several million years later. Stop off at Cap-de-la-vache-qui-pisse – a UNESCO site that’s an ideal location for geological discoveries – and then visit the new oyster farm.


Chute Vauréal

Visit Parc national d’Anticosti

An experienced guide will take you on a day-long shuttle tour of Parc national d’Anticosti. You'll explore the park's most emblematic locations: Chute Vauréal waterfall and Baie-de-la-Tour, both UNESCO sites; Les Falaises trail; the Wilcox shipwreck; and Pointe-Carleton, where one of the island's lighthouses dominates the landscape.


Chevreuils

Stroll through Baie-Sainte-Claire and Pointe-Ouest sectors

Both sectors are popular spots for fox, deer, and bird watching, especially at sunrise and sunset. During the day, your walk will take you from the wreck of the Calou to Pointe-Ouest lighthouse, past ancient cemeteries that will be yours to discover, and down to the seaside.

The southern end of the island: Anticosti's hinterland

Wilderness is the hallmark of the island’s southern sector, featuring extensive seashores where seals bask, numerous canyons, and starry night vistas stretching as far as the eye can see.

What to do in the southern sector

Canyon

Explore the island's best-kept secrets

Canyon-de-la-Chicotte and Petit-Canyon-de-la-Chicotte trails take you through some of Anticosti's most spectacular sectors. The first trail invites trekkers to embark on a seven km hike through the forest to a canyon of atypical rock formations, where nature reigns supreme.

The second trail takes you past emerald-coloured natural pools carved out of the crystal-clear riverbed and surrounded by Nordic vegetation. A two km hike perfect for long moments of relaxation.


Chicotte-la-Mer

Chicotte-la-Mer sector

The 12 km Les Échoueries trail hugs the Gulf of St. Lawrence, wending its way around wild maritime landscapes typical of the island’s southern sector. Take the time to stop and check out the dozens of grey and harbour seals that bask here.


Pointe-Sud-Ouest

Pointe-Sud-Ouest sector

Anticosti Island's most beautiful birding site awaits you at the end of Pointe-Sud-Ouest trail, a five km hike leading to the lighthouse of the same name. This is one of the most isolated locations on the island, with a ghostly air caused by its stunted trees and an abandoned farm site.


Route en gravier

The dazzling road to the northern end of the island

Head to the island’s northern sector for a hike in Canyon-de-la-Vauréal: a seven km trail in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site, leading to the mythical Chute Vauréal waterfall. A brand-new observation deck is at your disposal, from which to admire the 76-metre-high waterfall.

The northern end of the island: to the rhythm of the tides

Anticosti Island’s northern sector offers you the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets, magical moments when the sky meets the sea. Adventure awaits you, a mere stone’s throw from the island's main attractions!

Canyon-de-la-Vauréal

Explore Canyon-de-la-Vauréal sector

There are two options for admiring Parc national d’Anticosti's most famous site: a seven km hike through Canyon-de-la-Vauréal, which takes you to the foot of the mythical Chute Vauréal waterfall, or a visit to the brand-new observation deck, where you can admire not only the falls, but also the various layers of fossilized sediment visible in the rock faces.


Baie-de-la-Tour

The Baie-de-la-Tour sector seafront

Worthy of the waters of the tropics, with its white sandy beach curved by two immense rocky cliffs, Baie-de-la-Tour is the perfect picnic stop! You can get there via Chute-Baie-de-la-Tour trail – a three km hike along the river – or venture out on a five km trail offering breathtaking views.


Grotte-à-la-Patate

Off the beaten track at Grotte-à-la-Patate

A three km hike takes you to the cave, one of the most expansive underground caverns in Québec at 625 m long. End your day with a short two km hike overlooking the vertiginous 90-metre-high Canyon-de-l'Observation nearby.


Route en gravier

The dazzling road toward the southern end of the island 

Plan a day trip to the southern part of the island, featuring Anticosti’s wildest landscapes. While exploring trails ranging in length from 2 km to 12 km, you’ll take in the canyons of the south, admire the seashores where seals bask, or discover emerald-coloured natural pools perfect for a moment of relaxation.
