Your Daily Itinerary

Here is your daily guide to attractions to visit in Bas Saint-Laurent.

Day One

Get out into nature and explore the beautiful wildlife surrounding you by visiting Hell's Gate Canyon. On both sides of the canyon, mountains stretch 90 meters (295 feet) high. A 99-meter-long (325-foot) bridge is suspended between the mountains, offering a panoramic view of the surrounding territory. You can also explore networks of walking trails around the bridge. 

Day Two

After a day among the trees, spend some time on the water with a whale-watching expedition. Several tours depart from Trois-Pistoles, and you can see over 80 species of whales, including minke and humpback whales. Bring your binoculars and watch out for whale spouts and fins. You can also listen for breathing and splashes through the water.

Day Three

Spend a relaxing day at the Kamouraska Regional Museum. The museum, located in the old Kamouraska convent, features exhibitions that showcase the region's history. Visitors can learn everything from how residents lived and dressed to how they did business. The museum also features a boutique with locally made books, art, clothing and decor.
