Under an hour east of the City of Québec, between mountains and sea, the Charlevoix region is a dream destination for enjoying outdoor activities. In 1989, it was declared a UNESCO® World Biosphere Reserve. With no fewer than three national parks including one of the world’s top marine mammal observation sites, its flora and fauna are simply stunning.
That’s what makes it a truly unique visitor destination.
Since time immemorial, artists, musicians, writers and painters have all drawn inspiration from the beauty of Charlevoix’s landscapes. The highly acclaimed Group of Seven were among those who every year, spent time in Baie-St-Paul, a municipality renowned for its charm and romance, tucked away in a verdant valley.
Whether you’re in La Malbaie Sector, the St. Lawrence River Sector or the Mountain Sector, you’re sure to be charmed by the region’s lovely string of villages and long-standing tradition for hospitality.
