a hotspot for hikers and skiers. The area
features a wealth of parks such as the Parc
national du Mont-Mégantic, which features
an astronomical observatory.
Gaspésie: This peninsula is home to Rocher
Percé, a 470-metre-long rock whose fossils
date back 400 million years. Parc National
de Miquasha is a fossil-rich site that UNESCO
has placed on its World Heritage List. For
relaxing, nothing beats sitting in the sand at
one of the superb beaches of Chaleur Bay.
Îles-de-la-Madeleine: Lagoons, capes,
green valleys, red cliffs and brightly painted
houses are what make up this archipelago, comprised of a dozen islands in the
heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The Seal
Interpretation Centre presents information on
the area's mammals.
Lanaudière: The 103 islands of the Lac SaintPierre archipelago make up the UNESCO
Lac Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve which, in
addition to being the largest waterfowl staging area in North America, provides sanctuary to 288 species of birds every year.
Laurentides: Just north of Montréal lies
the Laurentides area, featuring lakes, crosscountry ski hills, golf courses and more. The
area is home to Mont-Tremblant, which has
been crowned the number one ski resort
in eastern North America five times by Ski
Magazine. Cyclists are privileged in the
Laurentides region with the P'tit train du

natural features: the St. Lawrence river, the
Saguenay fjord, the Parc Nature de Pointeaux-Outardes, beluga and fin whales and 175
bird species.
Mauricie: Mauricie is a land of untouched
natural splendor: 85 percent of its territory
has remained undeveloped. In addition to
the Rivière Saint-Maurice, the area features
17,500 lakes, nearly 2,500 km of groomed
snowmobile trails, 1,125 km of ATV trails and
80 hunting and fishing outfitters.
Montérégie: Visitors can see the Chambly
Canal, in use since 1843, where most of
the locks still function manually. Or, they
can visit the Fort Chambly National Historic
Site of Canada, built in 1709 and site to
various armed conflicts in the 17th and 18th
centuries.
Montréal: A haven of historical buildings
and French culture, the old city of Montréal
features 18th and 19th century residences,
the neo-gothic Notre-Dame Basilica, as well
as museums such as the Centre d'histoire de
Montréal.
Nord-du-Québec: This northern and largest
of Québec's regions is home to the Inuit,
Cree and Naskapi aboriginal people. This
vast territory is a haven to the hunter, sport
angler or snowmobiler.

QUÉBEC

Québec is divided into 20 touring regions:
* Abitibi-Témiscamingue: This region's Cité
de l'Or, or Gold City, is home to the Lamaque
mine, which was once the richest gold mine
in Québec. Visitors can explore 300 feet
underground, or admire the collection of minerals at the Musée minéralogique de Malartic.
* Bas-Saint-Laurent: Visitors can take a whalewatching cruise in Saguenay-St. Lawrence
Marine Park. The many villages of the area
will welcome tourists with the area's cuisine,
ancestral homes and Québec hospitality.
* Charlevoix: Designated a biosphere reserve
by UNESCO, Charlevoix owes its magnificent
geography to a 15-billion-ton meteorite that
fell to earth 350 million years ago. The area
features two national parks, the Parc national
des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie,
with its valleys and mountains, and Parc
national des Grands-Jardins, a land of taiga
and tundra.
* Chaudière-Appalaches: The ChaudièreAppalaches region is home to the Parc
national de Frontenac on the shores of the
magnificent 51 km2 Lac Saint-François - a
place of unspoiled nature that is ideal for birdwatching (over 144 species). Thetford Mines
features a Tourisme-Amiante mine tour for an
expedition into the heart of one of the world's
largest strip mines.
* Centre-du-Québec: The Centre-du-Québec
region is located halfway between Québec
City and Montréal, on the south side of the
St. Lawrence River. There is no shortage
of things to see or do: agritourism, events,
culture, heritage, outdoor activities, antiques,
golfing, snowmobiling, ATVing, conferences
and even industrial tourism!
* Duplessis: This area is sprinkled with bays
and coves, craggy islets, forests, rivers and
lakes. Fin whales, sperm whales and other
species live in the Gulf of the St. Lawrence.
The Île d'Anticosti, the largest island in
the province, features cliffs, canyons, falls
and rivers.
* Eastern Townships: The Appalachian
mountain chain makes its way through
the southern part of this region, making it
