Attractions & Activities

Cape Auget Eco-Trail
 
Step back in time on this walk on the edge of North America. On one side is a wilderness-gnarled windblown forests, streams and bogs and scraps of meadow. On the other side are the endless ocean vistas - a view of the sea. A sea which brought more then 350 settlers to Isle Madame.

Follow the Isle Madame roadside signs to Boudreauville trailhead, where you will find parking, a picnic area, washrooms and orientation signs and maps. Allow half a day to hike the whole trail, or choose a shorter route by following one or more of the many paths off the main trail.

LeNoir Forge Museum
 

Thomas and Simon LeNoir sailed from France to Arichat at the turn of the 19th century. Originally built with stone blocks from Port Hood in 1793 they set up a blacksmith and locksmith business. The ‘Old Forge’ serviced many vessels, fitting and refitting them with chains and anchors.

Restored in 1967 as a museum, the Forge features artifacts from Isle Madame’s past; operated by the Isle Madame Historical Society, it is the focal point of the Arichat Waterfront.

Open June to September, 10:00 to 5:00 daily. Tours guides on site to help you explore local history.
