Anticosti Island, photo safaris, wildlife, landscapes, tourism, summer vacationing - Rene Bourque

At the mouth of the Saint-Lawrence estuary in eastern Quebec, Canada, lies Anticosti, a 3000 square mile island with a sparse population of 250 people. It boast a deer herd averaging 200,000 whitetail deer, a fox population known as having among the highest densities in the world, and is the home of many species of shore and land birds and sea mammals

The tranquility of this island's natural environment, it's pristine salmon rivers, diverse wildlife, and breathtaking scenery have earned Anticosti Island a world class reputation for deer hunters, salmon fishermen, and more recently, for landscape and wildlife photographers.

Rene Bourque is an enthusiastic photographer and a professional guide with over 40 years experience on Anticosti. Since he was a teenager, he has been very interested in photography and everything related to this art in constant evolution. Organizing a photo tour to share the beauty of the island was only natural for him.
