Hiking on Île aux Lièvres

200, rue Hayward, Rivière-du-Loup, Québec G5R 3Y9


With its 13 kilometers in length, Île aux Lièvres is imposing and you won’t have enough of a day to explore it in its entirety. Discover natural viewpoints, explore deserted shores lined with rose hips, surprise a seal sleeping on the top of the beach…

Ten kilometers off the coast of Rivière-du-Loup, it is one of the best kept secrets of the estuary! It is accessible in just twenty minutes aboard one of the Duvetnor Company boats. The network of hiking trails is diverse and vast (45 km) and the level of difficulty varies from beginner to expert. And as a bonus, know that there are no dangerous wild animals, no stinging plants (in particular, no poison ivy) and much fewer mosquitoes than on the coasts. And that sea breeze to cool you off! Dwarf forests, escarpments, endless beaches, driftwood, yes, many, many dreams to be had (camera essential)!
