My girlfriend and I did this trail last Thursday and the temperature was hot. Nice trail but because it was very dry during the 2 last weeks, the roots and rocks really stucked out. Really nice view of the St Lawrence River and the archipelago of the "Îles aux Grues" at the "Cap Brûlé" view point. We took the trail "Anse de la Montée du Lac" comming back and had a specular view north on top of an observation tower. All in all, 7.2 kilometers.

Discover Charlevoix

Charlevoix is a natural sub-region that belongs to the Capitale-Nationale region. Geographically, Charlevoix is located northeast of Quebec City, along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River.

It is a very well-known region because of its mountainous landscapes, which attract many tourists every year who come here not only for hiking but also for

- Dedicate ourselves to agrotourism

- Relaxing at the spa

- Admire the cultural heritage of the region (art galleries, crafts)

Let's see these different attractions of the region one by one.

As far as agrotourism is concerned, in Charlevoix you can take the Route des Saveurs. It is a path that goes from Petite-Rivière-Saint-François to La Malbaie, where you can discover fine wines, cheeses, organic meat and fine chocolate. This route is very special and offers the possibility to see how the products of the territory are transformed into symphonies of taste.

Speaking of spas, Charlevoix offers several establishments to try the pleasure of a true beauty treatment. What could be better than massages to relax after a long hike? At Le Germain Charlevoix, you'll find top-quality beauty treatments, and you can also take advantage of the many special offers reserved for tourists.

In conclusion, we must mention the fact that in Charlevoix, creation is a tradition. Here, craftsmanship is indeed very widespread, whether it is the art of ceramics or metal sculptures. It is therefore advisable to visit the region's handicraft laboratories to closely observe the making of small works of art and, why not, buy a souvenir.
