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.
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.
To see the Route des Navigateurs’ path through Centre-du-Québec.
