The Bas-Saint-Laurent region stretches out along the St. Lawrence River, from La Pocatière to Sainte-Luce-sur-Mer, and dives into the hinterland all the way to New Brunswick. The unique geographic position of Bas-Saint-Laurent explains the region’s diverse and spectacular landscapes: ocean, plains, islands, mountains and valleys. The dual presence of land and sea contributes to the richness of activities and culinary delights. Cruises, marine interpretation activities and nautical sports are great ways to explore the sea. The hinterlands, for their part, offer outdoor or recreational tourism centres, hiking and, of course, winter sports such as snowmobiling and dog sledding. Tantilize your taste buds with the many terroir products that will please the finest of palates: chocolate, cheese and delights from the sea. An excursion to Parc national du Bic will allow the visitor to appreciate even more the splendour and rich natural beauty of Bas-Saint-Laurent. Grandiose panoramas, aquatic birds and seals all contribute to make a visit to the area an out-of-the-ordinary experience. Finally, don’t hesitate to get on your bike! The Parc linéaire Interprovincial Petit Témis (Petit Témis Interprovincial Linear Park) goes across the Rivière-du-Loup region all the way into New Brunswick. The 130 km (81 mi) trail is a great way to discover places inaccessible by car.
