A true piece of Canadian history that is rarely mentioned. […] It was a gray and rainy day that really set the mood as we were greeted by " staff" of the island. Amazing.

In a few words

Nature and history hand in hand—that's the Grosse Ile experience! Fall under the spell of evocative landscapes, where nature inspires and stories captivate. You won't soon forget your visit. Delve into the lives of habitants, employees and immigrants alike as you tour the village and hospital sector on foot or by tourist trolley. Wander the Mirador Trail to admire the Isle-aux-Grues archipelago or take in the natural treasures that await you at every turn. Retrace the footsteps of the Irish or linger a while at the memorial and commune with these quarantined immigrants of the past. Grosse Île beckons...come be amazed.
