At 435 square kilometres, Mont-Carmel is the largest municipality in the MRC of Kamouraska. Nestled on the mountainside in the midst of nature, Mont-Carmel offers gorgeous views of Kamouraska and the St. Lawrence. Less than 5 kilometres from the main highway, its lake-studded territory extends all the way to the U.S. border. The Jean-Claude-Plourde municipal park offers visitors a snack bar, a heated pool and a stage for open-air shows and concerts.
Nature enthusiasts will be delighted with the vast choice of activities: quadding, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and hiking. The beach on Lac de l'Est, 13 kilometres long, is a great place to swim or simply relax. Enjoy the perfect blend of culture and nature on the Sentier culturel (culture trail) and the Circuit des chaises géantes (giant chair tour).
