Perfectly located to charm you

Centre-du-Québec has plenty of surprises in store for those who explore its paths. Bordered by the majestic Saint-Lawrence River and buttressed by the Appalachian Mountains, this region invites you to discover its major cities as well as all of its indubitably charming little villages. The region’s varied landscapes set it apart from the rest, particularly for cyclists and motorcycle riders. We also have several thematic roadways to discover: The Route to Gourmet Delights, with its incredible variety of local producers, and the Route des Navigateurs, with its many attractions and riverside stops, are just a few examples of what the region has to offer. In Centre-du-Québec, the people are welcoming and the places to visit are many!
