BY AIR, SEA, OR SNOWMOBILE!
There are many ways to travel to Harrington Harbour, each of which has it's own unique features.
Although flying is a little more expensive than some of the other options, it's the fastest route and you will fly over some amazing shorelines, lakes and rivers. Flying also involves a boat ride (in the summer) or a snowmobile ride in the winter since flights arrive in the neighboring village of Chevery, QC. Air Borealis (operated by PAL Airlines) is the only airline that currently has flights to Chevery, QC.
You can travel by sea on the Bella Desgagnes, which offers some amazing tourism packages that sails down the
beautiful Lower North Shore coastline.
Finally, if you are a snowmobile enthusiast venturing on the 'Route Blanche' will be an experience of a lifetime. The Ministère des Transports maintains the Route Blanche (White Route), a nearly 525 km snowmobile trail between Natashquan and Blanc-Sablon. Before traveling on the Route Blanche please consult with the Ministère des Transports, or contact us to determine the appropriate course as it may vary depending on obstacles (rivers and lakes) and the weather conditions.
