Sea kayaking in Quebec

Like tottering sand castles that are taking eons to fall into the sea, the sculpted limestone monoliths of the Mingan Archipelago blend shapes and colours to create a unique landscape. Sprawling over 100 square kilometres of navigable waters, most of the pristine islands and islets in this archipelago are easily reached by short kayak trips. While it’s easy to escape from other people in the islands, you’ll never be alone—the exceptional rock formations are home to large colonies of birds, including the famous Atlantic puffin. Camping, picnicking and hiking along the shoreline trails are excellent ways to discover the islands.
