Description

Discover this northern paradise located on the 53rd parallel. The town's dominant feature is the windbreak wall, only one of its kind in North America, and its proximity to unspoiled nature means you can breathe in the fresh air and enjoy enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities - both winter and summer - in ideal conditions. Visit the Mont-Wright Mine and itsinterpretation centre, which will introduce you to the region's mining history and tell you more about the North Shore's different mineral deposits. A 200-ton capacity Cat 789A mining truck stands proudly at the town's entrance. This heavyweight is a record breaker: it clocked 105,630 hours before retiring from duty.
