Tourisme Côte-Nord promotes sites that allow you to do outdoor activities. Users are responsible for their own safety and for anyone else they are responsible for. Outdoor activities come with risks and it's the user's responsibility to make sure they respect what their physical limit is, as well as any regulations on site.


The Innu are part of one of the 10 First Nations that live in the Province of Québec. Their presence on the Côte Nord dates back to over 9000 years. The Innus Essipit First Nation's reserve, is called Essipiunnuat, a name innu that means “the Innu of the river of shells.” The Innu are part of the extended Algonquian family that inhabited the banks of the St. Lawrence River. They developed a community-based economy. Essipit's various tourism companies allow you to explore the culture of this community. It will fascinate you with the stunning environment, panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River, and accommodations (cottages, condos, and campgrounds). Stop by the souvenir discover local artisans and terroir products.
