Visit the lighthouse

Pointe-au-Père Lighthouse National Historic Site

Climb to the top to admire the river in all its splendour! 

The 33-metre tall lighthouse provides a unique perspective on the St. Lawrence River. Nearly unique in Canada, the architecture of the Pointe-au-Père lighthouse is striking with its reinforced concrete tower supported by eight buttresses, its dioptric light and original interior staircase are still intact.

As soon as you arrive on site, go to the ticket office to make your reservation. Choose your time; there is a visit every 30 minutes. Visit the lighthouse and memorialize yourselves with a portrait!
