Silversea Luxury Cruises To SEPT-ILES (Quebec)

SEPT-ILES (Quebec)

One of Quebec’s most northerly towns, Sept-Iles lies on the cusp of wild and wonderful scenery - from island-speckled archipelagos to rivers flush pink with salmon. This small city enjoys dramatic staging, perched on a bay overlooking the wide St. Lawrence River, as it begins to open up into the Atlantic. The heavy industry that powered the city's growth has gradually been overshadowed by the majesty of nature, and with sweeping panoramas and dramatic coastline spreading all around, Sept-Iles is one of Quebec's most attractive assets.

Beautiful sandy beaches, with smooth grey rocks emerging from them, spread out below fragrant clusters of pine trees, while whales roll through the vast expanse of the St. Lawrence's waters offshore. Sail out onto the surface to get closer to marine mammals, or to explore the cluster of islands that wait at the mouth of the bay. The Île du Corossol bird sanctuary is set on Manowin Island, and alive with a huge gathering of seabirds – where auks, razorbills and ducks waddle and squark. The colourful beaks of puffins draw many of the visitors - who come to admire the adorable birds, as they cling to the steep cliffs. Learn of the area’s Innu First Nation heritage, who first tamed these harsh conditions, and worked symbiotically with nature long before Europeans set foot here. Visit the Vieux-Poste trading post, where they would historically meet to trade fur with the newly arrived Europeans, or the Musée Régional de la Côte-Nord, where the stories of 7,000 years of human history are told.

Your tour begins with a crossing via inflatable boat to Île Grosse-Boule. During the crossing, the Captain will entertain you about the environment, about the landscape and won't hesitate to slowdown for wildlife interpretation.

Following this not-soon-to-be-forgotten culinary encounter, the island's visitors are given time to discover the site on their own and take pictures. Walk to the lookout point that features an unobstructed view of the archipelago and city or simply relax in the sea air. During your return journey, keep your eyes peeled in case a whale comes to greet you.
