Once known as La-Pointe-aux-Esquimaux, Havre Saint-Pierre was founded by fishermen from the Magdalen Islands in 1857. Now the town is known for the neighboring Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada, which is made up of many islands and islets covering an area of 175 km2.

Havre-Saint-Pierre offers many activities and attractions. In particular, visitors can learn about the Innu community of Mingan (40 km west) and that community’s thousand-year-old culture through its art, crafts and landscapes.
