Discoveries a-plenty right next door

Located just 90 minutes away for 80% of Québec’s population, Mauricie is bisected by the Rivière Saint-Maurice, a tributary of the St. Lawrence. Consisting of nearly nine-tenths wilderness—good news for those who love the great outdoors—the region is marked by its religious and industrial history as much as by its cultural creativity and festive outlook.
