DID YOU KNOW?
In the mid-1800s, wealthy Canadian and American families summered on the shores of the St. Lawrence at Cacouna and Notre-Dame-du-Portage, both of which were near Rivière-du-Loup (the terminal of the Grand Trunk Railway).

Bas-Saint-Laurent

Low tides, high plateaus

Parc national du Bic, Bas-Saint-Laurent, © MTOQ / Sébastien CloutierOn the shores of the St. Lawrence, coastal levees and hills give way to a land of forests, winding rivers and lakes. When the setting sun makes the water sparkle and the tidal flats gleam, and the ferry skirts the shadows of islands that are home to countless seabirds, the Bas-Saint-Laurent, one of the five regions of maritime Québec, is at its most moving!

Foghorns and sea legs

The many excursions and cruises will introduce you to the islands that dot the coastline and the whales that frequent the Saguenay—St. Lawrence Marine Park. See the seabird colonies that swarm Île Saint-Barnabé across from Rimouski or Îles du pot-à-l'Eau-de-Vie near Rivière-du-Loup. Visit Île aux Basques, which faces Trois-Pistoles, where you can discover the traces of 16th-century whale hunters.
