Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada

Île Nue de Mingan

Located in the western region of the archipelago, île Nue de Mingan is composed almost entirely of a tundra-style landscape called the barrens which makes it an ecologically fragile and unique milieu. This apparently bare island, its rugged monoliths standing guard over sparsely-growing « bonsai » trees, will surely fascinate you. The main attractions are the remains of the Basque ovens, the monoliths, the seabirds, river-edge plants and, at low tide, seaweed and other sea organisms.
