    The Majestic St. Lawrence River

    Historical waterway, place of contemplation, source of inspiration... the St. Lawrence River plays a central role in Quebec’s geography and history. Its islands and islets, which number in the hundreds, and its riverbanks, which span more than a thousand kilometres, are inhabited by often unsuspected varieties of flora and fauna.
