110 km (70 mi.) + 65 min by ferryEscapade – 3 days
La Pocatière – Rivière-du-Loup – Saint-Siméon – Tadoussac
The Escapade is ideal if you have relatively little time to spend in Québec. Take advantage of your stay in Bas-Saint-Laurent to discover the talent hidden in the coastal villages in the Kamouraska area. You can also head inland to enjoy a host of outdoor activities in Pohénégamook or spend some time in the Témiscouata area.
On foot or by bike, explore the magnificent scenery that surrounds the Petit Témis Interprovincial Linear Park in this beautiful area of Canada.
In Rivière-du-Loup, set off to explore the nearby islands. You can also opt for a whale-watching cruise with Croisières AML (back in 2024).
While you are crossing the St. Lawrence by ferry from Rivière-du-Loup to Saint-Siméon, keep your eyes peeled and you may spot seals or belugas! Note that reservations are required for groups and buses.
Once in Saint-Siméon, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence, it is worth your while to drive to Tadoussac, which is only 40 kilometres (25 miles) east. Every year, this popular Côte-Nord destination welcomes tourists from all over the world who come to observe the whales, explore the Saguenay Fjord by boat and enjoy the festive atmosphere found in one of Québec’s most beautiful villages.
