Discovering Duplessis means stepping into a region both modern and ancient. Exploring this immense land, you'll see how whaling, the cod fishery, the fur trade, and forestry have been drawing people and families to settle here since the 16th century.

Discovering Duplessis means seeing and understanding how, since the 1950s, mining, hydroelectricity, and later the aluminum industry have driven the development and growth of the region's main towns: Sept-Îles, Port-Cartier, Havre Saint-Pierre, and Fermont.

Discovering Duplessis means, above all, meeting people. It means learning about the millennia-old history and culture of the Innu nation and its communities. It means taking time to experience daily life in the area's towns and villages through their natural attractions and local specialties.

And of course, coming to Duplessis means enjoying the coastline and omnipresent Gulf of St. Lawrence and storing up a lifelong supply of memories while cruising through the archipelagos, islands, endless beaches, and picture-perfect seaside villages. It means plunging at your own pace into an environment lavishly endowed with outdoor recreational opportunities and alive with light and fresh air.

So what are you waiting for? Check out the many attractions, packages, and tours available and make friends with the Duplessis region today!
