Lower St. Lawrence and Gaspé Peninsula

The estuary takes you from Saint-Jean-Port-Joli to Matane, where eventually, in the words of Jacques Ferron, “la mer […] mêle les eaux et le ciel” (the sea […] marries water and sky). This poetic world of sand banks, tides, lighthouses, seals and whales offers many points of interest. See the magnificent built heritage of Kamouraska, the waterfalls in Rivière-du-Loup or the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges church in Trois-Pistoles. Pedal along the sea coast paths in Rimouski or through the English Gardens in Grand-Métis. In Sainte-Flavie, marvel at Marcel Gagnon’s sculpted figures emerging from the sea or, in Saint-Ulric, the woodcarver’s house, a mix of folk and pop art. River and bike: the perfect getaway/discovery duo.
