Cruise schedule for Sept Iles.
Watch a destination video.
Sept-Îles is by no means a big, cultural or historical city; it is, however, quite a paradise for nature lovers : surrounding areas include a lot of forests, many sandy beaches, lakes and world-renowned rivers (notably for salmon fishing).
For places within the city, walking is doable, but if you want to go to the beach, or any place remotely outside the city, you will definitely need a car.
Take a boat trip to the nearby islands. During the summer, Croisière Petite Pingouin and Les Croisières du Capitaine run regular 10-minute ferry crossings between the island and Sept Îles port (adult/child $20/13), as well as archipelago cruises.
