Parc côtier Kiskotuk, Cacouna-L'Isle-Verte

With 10 km of hiking trails along the coast, Parc côtier Kiskotuk offers both forest and maritime landscapes. In the Ornithological Site sector, the trail starts out semi-wooded, then becomes more mountainous.

Once you reach the top, the panoramic view of the region is breathtaking.

In the Passereaux sector, you'll discover various natural environments in the area, such as the salt marsh, coniferous forest and peat bog, all dotted with lookouts where you can take your time to enjoy the scenery.

For the more adventurous, Île Verte is still accessible by ferry!
