Getting there and getting around

To visit our island, you can float, fly or walk. To float here, you’ll come by boat on the water taxi or ferry; both operate during the sailing season, from spring to late fall. To fly here, you'll take the helicopter, which takes over service when crossing by boat is difficult or when the ice hinders boats but is not yet thick enough to walk on. To walk to the island, you can take the ice bridge that is marked out in winter or, once each summer, join in the Sentier de la Bouette and walk across at low tide. Once on the island, the best ways to get around are walking, biking or the shuttle.
