A Weekend South of Laviolette Bridge
STAY CLOSE TO HOME!
We ought to break with routine every once in a while no matter the season, but something about summer has us all the more eager for a change of scenery. How about a weekend on the Route des Navigateurs in the Centre-du-Québec region? Leave your worries behind and bring only what you need to relax.
Stop #1:Have Breakfast on a Terrace
First stop: La Maison de Bibi, whose holiday atmosphere is sure to kick off your getaway weekend on the right foot. Let the wind blow through your hair as you enjoy breakfast on the sunny terrace.
Stop #2: A Wee Bit of Sun!
Then, it's off to the quai de Sainte-Angèle, where you can stroll about leisurely, take in the sights of the river, and enjoy a Saturday under the sun.
Stop #3: In the Land of Blueberries!
Now that you've stocked up on vitamin D, hop back on the road to hit up Bleuets & cie! The scenic view and the succulent smell and taste of homemade blueberry products are guaranteed to reinvigorate you. This stop is also a prime opportunity to learn more about the growing blueberry industry in Quebec.
Stop #4: Camping by the River!
With the day already coming to an end, head out to Camping Cap à la Roche to spend the night. Enjoy a moment of respite as you watch the sun set over the river in Deschaillons-sur-Saint-Laurent.
Stop #5: Wake Up by the River!
As you wake up in the wee hours of Sunday at Camping Cap à la Roche, savour your coffee and pack up your tent without hurry under the shining morning sun. Then, it's time to hit the road again!
Stop #6: Time for Lunch!
Have lunch at Moulin Michel de Gentilly to enjoy a fantastic setting, a hiking path and an atmosphere that's always a little bit festive.
Stop #7: Stretch Out Your Legs Before You Leave!
Make your final stop at parc écomaritime de l'Anse-du-Port to stretch out your legs a bit and see the river one last time before heading back home. Although the weekend is short, it's long enough to be rejuvenating if you slow down and follow the rhythm of the waves kissing the shoreline.
