La Société Duvetnor
La Société Duvetnor information
Lonely Planet review
Offshore, a series of protected islands sport bird sanctuaries and provide habitat for other wildlife. The nonprofit group La Société Duvetnor offers bird-watching and nature excursions to the islands. Sighting belugas is common. There are 45km of trails on the largest island, l'Île aux Lièvres, and accommodations, including a campground. Prices start at $25 for a 1½-hour cruise to Pot au l'Eau de Vie (the brandy pot), named for its use as a bootlegging way station during the Prohibition era.
