Scenic routes

The Route des Navigateurs

The Route des Navigateurs is a scenic drive for visitors inspired by maritime navigation, highlighting major waterways and the countryside they helped bring to life. It crosses the Bas-Saint-Laurent, Chaudières-Appalaches and Centre-du-Québec regions, mostly following Route 132.

The Route begins at Baie-du-Febvre.

In Nicolet-Yamaska, two places were chosen as points in interest, the Parc écologique de l’Anse du Port and the Baie-du-Febvre Interpretation Centre.

Along the way, stop off and visit the Club Nautique de la Batture, the Halte Josaphat-Duhaime rest area, Parc Gérard-Lupien and the Baie-du-Febvre migratory stopovers.

We hope that in the next few years, the Route des Navigateurs will continue into Pierreville, Odanak and Saint-François-du-Lac, as envisioned in the initial plan.
