An amphitheatre offering fun for the whole family, Rivière-du-Loup is best enjoyed as “surf and turf” experience. Stroll along the St. Lawrence at the Parc de la Pointe or admire the stunning 33-meter waterfall while enjoying a picnic in the heart of the city. Home port for the ferry between the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Charlevoix regions, Rivière-du-Loup is also the take-off point to the Société Duvetnor's islands, where you can stay in an inn, cabin, campsite or a real lighthouse surrounded by hundreds of seabirds and marine mammals. Or you can head out on a whale-watching cruise to see these marine mammals in their natural environment with your own eyes. On Île Verte, relax at the site of the oldest lighthouse in Québec, built in 1809, and stay in the light keeper's house!
