Near the location of the Yurt near Cap Aux Meules, lies some of the tallest hills on the main island. There are even communications towers positioned at the top. The view from there makes for an incredible vista of the archipelago. Be there in the evenings and the sunsets are gorgeous. The entire set of islands stretch either way, and even Entree Island stands lit up in the setting sunlight, showing its red cliffs.

To reach this point, you can either take a small gravel road that leads to the towers, or you can take the foot path that leads from the yurt to truly experience the terrain. By foot, to see both the main hill as well other smaller ones, the return trip is around 1 Km. We found blueberries in the fields of pasture land, as well as a roving fox.

Directions:

Leaving Cap aux Meules, take chemin de L'Eglise, Hermin Cormier, and then the dirt road called Butte de Vent.
