A wealth of natural and cultural heritage
From the banks of the St. Lawrence, the Mauricie extends into the heart of the boreal forest, covering 40,000 km2 (15,440 sq. mi.). The King's Road, Canada's first carriageway, runs alongside the river as it travels through Trois-Rivières, midway between Montréal and Québec City. The backcountry, a vast forested domain punctuated with lakes and rivers, is a veritable outdoor paradise. The growing interest for an Authentic Quebec makes the Lanaudière-Mauricie regions one of the most promising destinations in Quebec. Authentic Quebec, for a complete Quebec experience!
