Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve

The Mingan Archipelago, located on the North Shore of Quebec, is home to the largest concentration of monoliths in Canada. While whales and seals frolic at large, the thousands of islands and islets fascinate visitors with their arctic-alpine plants and colonies of birds.
