Prefabricated home of Quebec


The Lower St.Lawrence is an immense territory that stretches South up New Brunswick and Maine (USA) borders. It is bound to the West by the Chaudière-Appalaches region and to the East by the Gaspé region.

Vol d'oies blanches

Visitors can admire, in the Lower St.Lawrence, several kinds of natural habitats: swamps and salt water, rocky islands, northern forests, broad-leaved trees and many lakes, all just as fascinating

It's a genuine paradise for nature lovers and a rendez-vous for all ornithologists, with more than 320x bird species nesting and flying over this region. The mountains dominate the entire territory; it's no wonder their motto is:

"There where you will want to come back"

Many outdoor activities are suggested, such as :

Lake country

Several lakes are scattered all over the territory, of which Lac Témiscouata is a true inner sea. The mild weather favours aquatic activities. The St.Lawrence River is inhabited by sea mammals and cruises are organized for their observation. The water in this region is salty (the saltiness of the river begins at the island of Orleans).

Mystical region

The Lower St.Lawrence region abounds with unbelievable tales and legends. Pohénégamook Lake is believed to be inhabited by a monster called "PONIK". You'll also discover why the church of Trois-Pistoles was named Notre-Dame-des-Neiges, the legend of the black horse or the one of the silver goblet, and where does the name of Rivière-du-Loup come from?

Other Attractions

Located at Saint-Louis-du-Ha-Ha, far from the big cities, the Aster science station is accessible to those wishing to look at the cosmos.

The "Carillons Touristiques" and the "Château de Noël" will amaze both young and old. In season, come and taste the maple sugar products. The arts are also very present in the lower St.Lawrence, with its summer theaters and Rimouski Jazz Festival.
