Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada

Île du Fantôme

The name of this island derives from the schooner Phantom, shipwrecked in the north of the island in 1862. The island is fascinating because of the numerous shapes and forms that can be found there: rounded monoliths, shoreline carvings and coastal ledges divided up like a chessboard. The barrens, which covers part of the island, and the cliffs attract colonies of seagulls and herring gulls each year. Plant life on Île du Fantôme is delightful and, during the whole summer period, Parks Canada interpreters are available at various times of the day to introduce you to the natural wealth of this island.
