oTENTik family holidays on an island

After being gently lulled to sleep in a warm bed by the soft sounds of the sea, you’re ready to explore the region. Step out of your oTENTik tent to discover an unknown world. To the south are the massive and sheer Anse des Érosions monoliths which are even more impressive in early morning. What to do first? Go shelling along the shore in search of exquisite treasures washed up the night before? Wander along the trail that traverses the boreal forest, camera ready, or perhaps immerse yourself in the region’s highly specialized, often rare flora? Île Quarry offers endless discoveries to delight the whole family.

Each tent can accommodate up to 6 people and is furnished, heated, lit and installed on a raised wooden floor next to a small deck. It’s the perfect way for families, friends and couples of all ages to discover the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve’s enchanting setting while camping - no muss, no fuss.
