Nord-du-Québec is made up of three distinct tourist regions to be discovered: Baie-James, Eeyou Istchee and Nunavik. Many and varied outdoor activities are offered each and every season. The region abounds with fish and game, thus attracting hunters and anglers. Nord-du-Québec is home to a great many outfitters and is renowned for caribou hunting expeditions.
Snowmobile trails crisscross the region’s southern sector, linking a number of communities. The region includes the largest natural fresh water lake in Québec, Lac Mistassini and Québec’s highest peak, Mont d’Iberville, located in Nunavik.
Native guides are available to all those looking for an initiation into the traditional Aboriginal way of life, and they can also visit the Oujé-Bougoumou community village, recognized by the United Nations for its planning and development. Oujé-Bougoumou has managed to conserve its traditional and communal way of life.
Other places to visit in the region include the Robert-Bourassa development (the world’s largest underground hydroelectric power station), and the La Grande-1 generating station. It is also possible to visit an historic site, Parc Robert-A.-Boyd, which bears witness to the thousands of workers who resided in Radisson, from 1950 to the year 2000, in order to build dams there.
