Starting at 804$per person
25% discount is applicable to the above price, courtesy of the Explore Quebec program.
This program offers the opportunity to fly over the Mingan Archipelago National Park, and to land on what can rightly be called the Flagship of the St. Lawrence, a small continent in itself in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
You will see what remains of the first establishment of the famous French chocolatier, Henri Menier, who made this majestic island his kingdom. An island full of treasures, waterfalls, fossils and mysterious caves. An island once known as the “Cemetery of the Gulf” because of the many shipwrecks that took place there.
Your guide will take you to see the natural attractions of the central part of the island and the western sector of Anticosti including the village of Port-Menier (230 inhabitants). You will inevitably come across white-tailed deer. You will have the opportunity to feed them in your hands while having your morning coffee!

Remember: There is no cellular service on Anticosti nor between Sept-Iles and Rivière-au-Tonnerre. Only WIFI access points are made available by the municipalities. In Minganie, only the villages of Longue Pointe de Mingan, Mingan, Havre St-Pierre and Natashquan have cellular services. Not all the villages are equipped with a gas station. The distances are sometimes great. It is necessary to plan to refuel in the villages that offer the service before leaving for the next destination. Some villages have charging stations for electric cars. Be careful when driving on the roads, there is a lot of wildlife.
