Lower St. Lawrence (East)

EXPLORE QUÉBEC ON THE ROAD PACKAGES
Benefit from a 25% discount on the pre-tax price, thanks to the financial support of Tourisme Québec. The price shown includes this discount. This promotion applies only to Québec residents (upon presentation of proof of residency).

From La Pocatière, gateway to the Lower St. Lawrence, you will pedal to Saint-Pacôme – one of the most beautiful villages in Québec, and then to Kamouraska, renowned for its magnificent landscapes. After Saint-André, you will follow the shoreline to Notre-Dame-du-Portage and be able to appreciate the full scope of the river, which becomes tidal once it reaches Rivière-du-Loup. You will be captivated by the church, museum and cheese plant of Trois-Pistoles, as well as by the natural beauty of the Bic National Park, which you will pass through on your way to Rimouski. Breathtaking route, gourmet lunch stops and the emptying of the St. Lawrence into the Atlantic… a winning recipe for a wonderful vacation!
