Day 1: Blanc-Sablon | Old Fort | Rivière-Saint-Paul (80 km)

Upon your arrival in the region of Blanc-Sablon, you are invited to stop at the visitor welcome/ interpretation centre to familiarize yourself with the services offered as well as learn about this region’s history. Afterwards, we recommend that you explore the different trails situated in the vicinity of Blanc-Sablon and equipped with interpretation panels. The “Sentier de l’Astragale” is a 2.5km intermediate level trail. It is found at the summit of Mont Parent. This trail was developed to protect the Astragalus, a rare plant. We also recommend the trail “Sanctuaire de la Vierge Marie” where you will have multiple views of the entire village. This trail offers a magnificent view of the village. This trail is 0.5km, developed for novices. Lastly, we also suggest that in your free time you take a walk to the belvedere of “l’ile aux perroquets” for a great view of the island. This trail is located between Blanc-Sablon and Brador. It covers a distance of 1.5km. After exploring our hiking trails, we invite you to head out along the highway towards Middle Bay. The Middle Bay Interpretation Centre acts as the gateway to the villages of Middle Bay. You will find a permanent exhibit on the history and heritage of the village and the region, illustrated by artefacts and images. Paintings and handmade model ships are just a few of the various objects that showcase the local traditional talents. You may want to consider eating a little something because this little museum also has a restaurant. As your exploration continues, it will lead you to the end of route #138 west and the village of “Vieux-Fort”. Here you could take a stroll along the seaside promenade of this charming village. You will walk alongside an ancient cemetery that has recently been restored.

Several hiking trails to the north of the village will lead you to the fabulous observation point of “Granny’s Hill”. At the end of the afternoon, we invite you to drive back to the village of Rivière-St-Paul.   After your arrival in Rivière-St-Paul, continue your exploration and head to I & S Seafoods, a marine products processing plant. An experienced employee will show you the functions of a processing plant. You have the choice of ending your day in the charming family atmosphere of the B & B or to stay in the Auberge. The supper is included.
