Enjoy this four-day itinerary with the kids along portions of the Beauce Route and the Delights and Parks Route.

The region is known for its Navigator’s Route running along the river. This itinerary takes you into the back country along the Rivière Chaudière, and loops back up to the east. Agritourism, natural parks and attractions, camping, a zoo, alpacas... A bit of everything!

237 km

A driving tour along portions of two Chaudière-Appalaches tourist routes: in the Beauce, Etchemins and Bellechasse regions



Day 1

From Scott to Sainte-Marie: dinosaurs to alpacas

Woodooliparc theme park

Add to my planner

Spend a morning or afternoon of wild fun in the different universes at the Woodooliparc theme park. In summer it features dinosaurs, the Zone TOXIC with a mad scientist and Elfia, and illuminated paths at night.

Maison J.-A. Vachon, birthplace of Vachon cakes

Add to my planner

Visit the Maison J.-A. Vachon, a jewel of Beauce industrial heritage, and learn the story of Rose-Anna, who baked her little cakes in her kitchen. Taste one for yourself at the end of the hour-long tour.

Alpagas des Appalaches

Add to my planner

Tour the alpaga farm in Saint-Elzéar. These friendly-faced animals are raised for their wool, which is even warmer than sheep's wool. Have fun in the playground and a enjoy a picnic in this lovely setting.

Day 2

A day in the outdoors: zip lines and a picnic

Village Aventuria

Add to my planner

Another theme park with loads of activities: Village Aventuria has 16 zip lines, five aerial courses, a race course, a dizzying path featuring a knight and a pirate boat... Let your imagination go wild!

Day 3

Lac-Etchemin to Saint-Philémon: fun in the parks

Éco-Parc des Etchemins

Add to my planner

If you’ve spent the night at Lac-Etchemin campground, which boasts a water park, you’ll be torn between spending the day there or visiting the Éco-Parc water slides on the shores of the same lake. Or why not get up early and do both!

Parc régional du Massif du Sud

Add to my planner

You’ll arrive in this regional park in Saint-Philémon in the evening and will spend the night in the campground or ready-to-camp accommodations: cabins, boreal tents, prospector tents, yurt and pods—those fun, cone-shaped mini cabins.

Day 4

A day of tasty food and a stop at the zoo

Miller Zoo

Add to my planner

The zoo in Frampton is also home to a wildlife rehabilitation centre and a petting zoo. Every family trip should include a zoo, right? It’s a great opportunity for the kids to learn about North American and exotic animal species.

Cabane à Pierre

Add to my planner

End off the day with a fabulous meal at Cabane à Pierre, a sugar shack open year-round. Learn how maple sap is turned into syrup. It’s a must on ice cream, crêpes and ham!
