Bas-Saint-Laurent

Bas-Saint-Laurent is a rich blend of coastal, rural and forest scenery. The influence of the sea and land can be felt throughout this region, both in the architecture of the houses and on the menus of the region’s many fine restaurants. In addition, islands, lakes and rivers offer both hard and soft adventure opportunities.

In the winter, Bas-Saint-Laurent experiences heavy snowfall, much to the delight of winter sports enthusiasts. The forests, lakes and shoreline of this region offer many opportunities for winter activities, including snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, ice fishing and more.
