Nature and humans. We grew up together.

The meteoric Charlevoix effect
The region’s powerful, magnetic attraction began 400 million years ago with an epic meteorite impact that sculpted one of the most beautiful and unique landscapes in Quebec. It also left behind a particular magnetism and energy where visitors stop, breathe and reawaken their senses. A reconnection worth experiencing.Discover Charlevoix
