Day 1: --- Sept-Iles

This package begins in Sept-Îles, a major city straddling the 50th parallel of north latitude. This capital of the Middle North Sea is a place where members of the Innu first nation who have lived here for thousands of years rub shoulders daily with the Sept-îliens, sons and daughters of families from the other side of the river, from the Magdalen Islands and from many other places downstream and upstream of the St. Lawrence. A visit to the North Shore Regional Museum and the Old Post Office is an excellent introduction to the region you are about to discover.

For nature lovers, we invite you to explore the wonderful walking trails that surround the city. There is the Bois Joli stream garden which may be of interest. The trails in Aylmer-Whittom Park, locally known as Squirrel Park, join those in the Bois Joli Creek Community Garden and the Iron Sculptures and Forest Trails section creating a network long enough to walk the day away! The Squirrel Park has approximately 3 km of trails; adding the nature trails, it is possible to walk more than 15 km. This park is ideal for hiking and appeals to bird watchers. Finally, there is the Promenade du Vieux-Quai park at the Sept-Iles marina. The trail runs along the entire bay of Sept-Iles. In good weather, the view of the islands, the sea and the boats is simply amazing!
