Charlevoix

  • charlevoix
Over 200 years of hospitality

A hospitable region that has long captivated painters, poets, writers and musicians, Charlevoix paints things larger-than-life, from the majesty of its peaks to the immensity of the St. Lawrence. In the heart of the Canadian Shield, the region’s turbulent topography is due to the impact of an enormous meteorite. This UNESCO World Biosphere reserve features distinctive fauna and flora.

Côte-Nord

  • region_large_cote-nord
Between earthly and unearthly

The Côte-Nord is actually an amalgamation of two regions: Manicouagan and Duplessis. Running along the St. Lawrence as it turns from estuary to gulf, the coastline here is dotted with lighthouses, whale-watching sites, archipelagos and beaches. But the magic extends far beyond the river: the Côte-Nord is also a prime destination for hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, green spaces, nature and scenery. Indeed, Manicouagan- Uapishka has been designated a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve. The sea mammals of the St. Lawrence River make their lovely dance in this region where everything is grandiose. The dams are oversized, and even the littlest villages astonish by their great beauty.

No end of things to do

In 1965, the island of Laval merged its 14 municipalities into a single city. Self-defined as “Urban by nature”, Laval today offers the best of both town and country. Along with superb shopping at mega-malls like Carrefour Laval or Centre Laval, attractions that combine fun with education, and numerous dining destinations, the island is an important centre of agricultural production, with fully 30% of its surface area given over to the activities of some 150 farmers and growers.

There are great things to do in the Land of giants

This “Kingdom” where everything is larger than life is characterized by two massive bodies of water: the Saguenay Fjord and Lac Saint-Jean.

Whether by car or by bike, a drive around Lac Saint- Jean—a veritable inland sea—is a must, with a plethora of historic, amerindian, nature and outdoor attractions.
