Three ideas for a trip to the Côte-Nord this summer

Three ideas for a trip to the North Shore this summer té

UPGRADE DAY

This summer, we’re doing – again! – the tour of Quebec. Each weekend, we offer you a few new or lesser-known attractions in a region of the province. Enough to complete your vacation itinerary or fill your days off. Today: heading for the North Shore.

Cultural dive with the Lalo Family

Experiment with traditional lobster fishing, taste typical Innu dishes, go to sea to observe Atlantic puffins and other migratory birds, learn how to set up an Innu tent and settle there to at night: the Lalo Family invites travelers to discover the culture of the Innu of Nutashkuan through various activities.

And to discover, by the same token, the splendid nature of “Nitassinan” and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The community is located next to the Natashquan River, just a few dozen kilometers from the “end” of Route 138. If you’re looking for fun things to do in toronto with your family, Click Here.

Beers inspired by the Private Hunt

In the heart of the Saguenay Fjord, on Principale Street in the village of Sacré-Coeur, La Chasse-Gardée microbrewery produces beers inspired by the Côte-Nord region: Nordic berries, wild mushrooms, herbs and wildflowers. It is possible to taste these products at the tasting room or to make reservations at the shop. Tours of the brewery are also organized by reservation on Fridays and Saturdays. The young company from the Haute-Côte-Nord is part of the Boire Côte-Nord solidarity group, which brings together five independent microbreweries in the region.

Kayak, zip line and sushi

There are guided excursions in Baie-Comeau that combine sea kayaking, zip line over a bay, sushi meal on the beach and tasting of local beers and gins. Who says better? It is Attitude Nordique, a company born in 2018, which offers this original activity.

These are not its only excursions somewhere else. There are also, among other things, kayaking evenings at sunset with a gourmet picnic, mornings combining paddle boarding, yoga and healthy lunch or even paddle boarding, zip line and rope bridge outings.
