Silversea Luxury Cruises To HAVRE ST. PIERRE (Quebec)

HAVRE ST. PIERRE (Quebec)

Havre St. Pierre is a tiny seaside port on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River in Quebec. It was settled in 1857 by Acadians from the Magdalen Island, and still today locals speak a dialect more similar to Acadian French than to Quebec French. It was originally called Saint-Pierre-de-la-Pointe-aux-Esquimaux until 1927, when it was officially shortened to Havre St Pierre. Until recently the local economy relied mainly on fishing and lumbering, today it is mainly a titanium ore-transhipment port. View more

Nearby is one of the world’s most amazing natural phenomena – the Mingan Archipelago. They are the largest group of erosional monoliths in Canada, and were declared a Nation Park in 1984. These limestone monoliths have formed over thousands of years by wave action, strong winds and seasonal freezing and thawing. The result is a unique set of large limestone sculptures.

Discover Havre-Saint-Pierre on Foot

Experience the evolution of this magnificent piece of the world through its colorful people and stories where past and present fuse together.

Meet your local guide at the pier and start your guided walk which will lead you to the heart of the Cayen lifestyle. Learn the history of this small town established in 1857, after six fishing families from Îles-de-la-Madeleine disembarked on the North Shore of the Saint Lawrence. Now, more than 150 years later, the people of Havre-Saint-Pierre are still proud of their Acadian roots, hence, their unique accent and the tricolour flag that blows in the wind all over town.

You know the famous little fruits so unique to the north coast? You will have the chance to take a pose during your hike and taste a tasty tip of cloudberry called 'Chicoutai'. During a short break, you will have the opportunity to taste the famous Cloudberry pie at the traditional Chez Julie Restaurant, and finish the tour with a complementary ticket for the local museum Maison de la Culture Roland-Jomphe.

The Roland Jomphe culture house, an old general store, hold a permanent exhibit whose theme is "the other story", time-lining the history of Havre-Saint-Pierre from its founding until today.
