Lower St. Lawrence and Gaspé Peninsula

The estuary takes you from Rivière-du-Loup 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 tides, lighthouses, seals and whales offers many points of interest. See 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!
