You've gotta experience this

Cap-Pelé Guided Tours with Artemise

We’re inviting you to discover the many reasons this colourful Acadian village is unique. Cap-Pelé is North America’s largest exporter of smoked herring, and on select days tours will begin by stepping into the Smokehouse Museum. Listen to the Acadian lilt as you chat with residents. Stop by the Fisherman’s workshop and the lobster pound at the Aboiteau wharf to see how traps are made and hold a large lobster for the perfect photo-op. Take note of the statue of the angel that watches over the fishermen and then visit the Sainte-Thérèse-d’Avila Church, built in the shape of a boat. In a working smokehouse, you’ll not only smell the aromatic smoked herring, you'll taste some, too. You’ll know for certain that you’ve truly connected with the village’s 200-year spiritual and cultural history.
