Poised on the St. Lawrence estuary at the gateway to Gaspésie, Matane boasts an outstanding location. Its name originates in a Mi’kmaq word for “beaver pond,” so it’s no surprise to learn that Matane is a nature destination par excellence. Discover a vibrant human-scale downtown whose array of sites and services make it the most attractive city in the eastern Québec. You’ll also be charmed by the legendary hospitality of the people of this region that’s by turns urban, rural, industrial and historic—but above all, maritime.
