  • You need to visit the reserve absolutely. Several options available to you. I have personally visited the naked Island to parrots, Island (with the shuttle service from the Loiselle family a long rush of Mingan), big island, island Quarry and monoliths (with lights Maritime Services). He must know that hiking is possible on nine islands in the archipelago. Some trails are designed in wood (Quarry and monoliths Islands), others not arranged through the coast (Islands monoliths, the ghost, the big island to the hammer, the big island, naked and Quarry). Whether on the edge of the sea, or in the heart of the boreal forest, there are many cliffs, seabirds, colorful flowers, heathlands and bogs that decorate the universe of the Mingan archipelago. It is worth noting that to bring enough drinking water because no source is available. There is some point of water on the Islands or you can fill your water bottles, on the other hand, treat the water with the Aquatabs. It is a perfect place for a unique experience.

  • Do NOT MISS a boat trip to Mingan Archipelago. It's a world renowned destination
  • The rock structures are amazing and the whole place has a very comfortable feel to it
  • Long drive from Montreal but worth it. WOW
  • Park is super clean and the trails are well made. Park info center employees are sometimes a little too clueless about the tours but the guides on-site seem more than adequate.
  • beautiful, must come back.
