Stroll along the river

From La Pocatière, gateway to the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, you'll head for Saint-Pacôme - one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec - and then on to Kamouraska, renowned for the splendor of its scenery. After Saint-André, you'll drive mainly along the water's edge, notably to Notre-Dame-du-Portage, and can appreciate the extent of the river, now described as a sea, once you reach Rivière-du-Loup.

With its church, museum and cheese factory, Trois-Pistoles is sure to charm you, as is the life-size beauty of the Bic, which you'll pass on your way to Rimouski. A beautiful route, gourmet stops and the river opening out to the Atlantic... a winning recipe for a successful vacation!
