Tourisme Charlevoix

Arrière-pays

Charlevoix’s back-country weaves its way on a fertile territory where gourmet delights can be combined with adventure fun. Upon kilometres, we stop to load on goodies along the Flavour Road, we climb our two national parks looking forward to spectacular photos. We enter forests to the greatest pleasure of fishing and snowmobiling enthusiasts. Here all pleasures are allowed including the one of doing nothing.

Saint-Urbain, Saint-Hilarion, Saint-Aimé-des-Lacs, Notre-Dame-des-Monts…many names for as many sympathetic villages in the back-country to be discovered by foot or on two or four wheels. Surrounded by peaks, some of which being among the highest of the Canadian Shield, the back-country villages offer an unrestricted view. Upon hundreds of laid-out trails, hiking, snowshoeing and snowmobiling fans will have the time of their lives. To the West, climbing Mont du Lac des Cygnes in the parc national des Grands-Jardins is a must as is the Acropole des Draveurs near the parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie.

    Feeling so small in this infinite wonder. Having the impression of being both fragile and invincible, on the roof of the world!

  • The Mountain Road

    On a landlocked road sweeping through our national parks or on twisted roads of country villages, the word adventure gains altitude on the Mountain Road.

  • Saint-Urbain’s rural character sets it apart. The picturesque town is nestled in a fertile valley delineated by the surrounding Laurentians’ impressive peaks. A variety of farm products such as organic pork, emu, duck and beef may be found here. Furthermore, the lovely salmon river du Gouffre flows through the town.
