Saint Lawrence River, QC, Canada
The St. Lawrence River—a massive presence cutting clean across the Québec area—cannot be overlooked. Gateway to America, it has been a part of the city’s economic landscape for over 400 years. Harbour and trade activities and the ever-growing number of cruise ships docking in the Vieux-Port de Québec testify to its importance. A public market, park, bike path and shows also bring the Vieux Port to life and help make this river-washed place truly idyllic.
Near the bridges that span the River, the Aquarium du Québec not only provides an outstanding view of the majestic waterway, but also presents the marine mammals and species that inhabit it. Close by, the Promenade Samuel-De Champlain is also worth a gander: the River flowing at your feet is simply spectacular! Visit Canada. Epic Canada Route © Monika Newbound
