Tourisme Charlevoix

Municipalité de Petite-Rivière-Saint-François


As you progress downhill, with a panoramic backdrop, appears a village bordering the St-Lawrence River for several kilometers. Petite-Rivière-St-François is where settlers first touched ground in Charlevoix, and has long been home to infrastructures used to build and store schooners, a time that can be discovered while walking the riverside trail. Depending on the season, you may take a look at the artworks displayed at the Maillard chapel, enjoy the breathtaking view at the pier, or have a peaceful picnic at Riverains park. During the winter season, sliding sport lovers will find their thrill at the Massif de Charlevoix. A few miles from the village, on route 138, is the starting point of the Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix and the Gabrielle-Roy trails.


  • Brother Vianney’s chapel which underwent major renovations is part of the local religious heritage. To include to your itinerary.


  • For campers and families who enjoy gatherings, come and participate in the many activities in the heart of the village including the outdoor family brunch, contests and sports tournaments for all. L’Estival is the ideal occasion to go camping and to share moments of fun and joy.

Charlevoix’s oldest festival, the Festivités de l’Anguille, celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2018.
