Located on the northern shores of the St Lawrence River, the beautifully forested Manicouagan region and its cottage rentals reside in UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Long famed for its natural beauty and cultural heritage, the Manicouagan region lends itself perfectly to outdoor sporting recreations. Providing opportunities for whale watching - with 13 species found in the St Lawrence - and great terrain for paddling, hunting, snowmobiling, and ice fishing, Manicouagan’s beaches, bays, and coastline are a naturalist’s paradise.
Be sure to visit Baie-Comeau’s Jardin des Glaciers to learn about the last ice age, climate change, and the migration of First Nation peoples. The Musée amérindien et inuit pays tribute to the Aboriginal communities present in the Manicouagan area, and features an art gallery that displays and sells local artisans’ work.
Located three hours’ drive north of Québec City, the Manicouagan region is a popular place to rent a cottage in Quebec.+ More
