Whatever the time of the year, enjoy the beautiful countryside of the Bas-Saint-Laurent or the coast along the river, which becomes the sea. From Kamouraska to Sainte-Luce, passing by Témiscouata, Bas-Saint-Laurent is a rich amalgam of maritime, agricultural and forest landscapes. Whether you are the "active" or the "contemplative" type, enjoy your vacation to discover the villages, islands, lighthouses, national parks, marine mammals and the many activities that can be practiced in this beautiful region of Quebec , which is said to be a "good time world reserve". Bas-Saint-Laurent, which is also known as the Lower St. Lawrence, boasts some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. This region islocated on the south shore of the St. Lawrence and is the western gateway to the Gaspésie Tour. Depending on where you are coming from, there are many ways to get here. While Saint-André is considered the mecca of sports climbing in Québec, Rivière-du-Loup offers exciting whale-watching excursions. Sea kayaking is possible almost everywhere along the coast, and several islands in the St. Lawrence are accessible for wildlife observation, visits to lighthouses and overnight stays. In the interior, cyclists and hikers can enjoy several days of their favourite activity in the Petit-Témis Interprovincial Linear Park, which consists of 134 km (83 miles) of gravel trails along an old railroad bed. Cyclists can also explore the many other trails in the region, including the Route Verte, which runs along the St. Lawrence. BAS-SAINT-LAURENT TOURISM www.bassaintlaurent.ca/en
