The Lighthouse Experience


Certain islands of the St. Lawrence River are jealously protected, and for good reason: they represent the privileged haven of aquatic bird colonies and are a stopping place for many fin whales and seals. Inhabited for a long time by only one person in a situation as the lighthouse keeper, these islands are open today to people who desire a getaway colored with peace and tranquility, seeking an intimate encounter with almost virginal land .

Itinerary

  • Day 1 Rivière-du-Loup

    Rivière-du-Loup Rendez-vous at Riviere-du-Loup on a cruise for interpretation of the great river and its gems. As soon as you arrive on the Pot-à-l’eau-de-Vie Island, you will be charmed by the beauty, but especially by the absolute calm and tranquility, which bathes these grounds. Truthfully, the only inhabitant of this island is, and always has been, the lighthouse keeper. Deserted except for birds and seals, this island has kept its wild character. Spend the night in the home of the lighthouse keeper.
