Île à la Chasse

Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve

Although it is at the eastern end of the archipelago, Île à la Chasse is worth the trip. This island was host to Count Henry de Puyjalon, a notable character in region's history. With his many lakes and peat bogs, it's a sanctuary for several bird species. The shoreline, in certain places, has preserved clear traces of the ice age. An island to discover.

Trail map and regulations

While hiking, remain on established trails or on the shoreline where there is no vegetation.

Falling rocks are a hazard near the cliffs. When possible, keep a safe distance, avoid walking beneath overhanging rock and do not stop next to the cliffs.

At low tide, water and seaweed on the rocks create slippery conditions. Please proceed with caution.
