Tapered at the ends, this island reminds some of a ship, while others consider it the world's smallest continent! An impressive 13 kilometers in length, it cannot be fully explored in one day. Discover natural lookouts, explore deserted beaches edged in brier roses, find a seal dozing on the upper part of the beach... Both wild and inviting, Île aux Lièvres will enchant you.
Ten kilometers across the water from Rivière du Loup, Île aux Lièvres is one of the best kept secrets of the estuary! Get there in just twenty minutes aboard a Duvetnor boat. The network of hiking trails is vast and diverse (45 km), with trails ranging in difficulty from novice to expert, the level of each clearly marked on the map you will receive upon landing. As a bonus, there are no dangerous animals, no stinging plants (no poison ivy, in particular), and far fewer mosquitoes than on the coast. Plus, refreshing ocean breezes, dwarf forests, escarpments, endless beaches, driftwood... And yes-scores of memories to be made (camera a must)!
Frigid but fertile waters, remarkable biological diversity, seal haulouts, cliffs swarming with marine birds, and joyful little pods of belugas crossing your path! Come to the St. Lawrence with us! We promise wonderful surprises.
All our cruises are guided and educational.
Come for the smell of the sea, for an up-close look at unspoiled nature, and most of all for discovery!
The variable tide schedule and problems with sediment dredging in the Rivière-du-Loup marina constrain us to modify the daily departure times for excursions. Check with us to plan your cruise.
