The Charlevoix region is a beautiful part of Quebec province, renowned for its culture, colourful seasons and beautiful scenery.
In the heart of the valley where the river runs down to St Lawrence is Baie-Saint-Paul, renowned for its art galleries and as the birthplace of the famous touring artistic troupe, Cirque de Soleil. In fact, the Rue Saint-Jean-Baptiste features one of the highest concentrations of art galleries in the whole of Canada!
Museums, cultural attractions, top restaurants and lively bars make a trip to Baie-Saint-Paul a memorable experience on your tour of Canada, and the town’s summer and winter festivals – Le Festif de Baie-Saint-Paul musical and circus-arts festival in summer, and the Marché de Noël de Baie-Saint-Paul Christmas markets in December – means there’s always a party going on!
Golfers will discover some great courses nearby, and budding botanists will love Azulée; a charming Charlevoix farmhouse and certified organic lavender fields. Be sure to stop for a pint of craft beer at a microbrewery too!
