  • A night with friends, dinner and breakfast included, this is very nice. Exploring nature for 24 hours, on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River it's magic, as long as it is nice!

This company offers eco-tourism products in the islands located in the region of Rivière-du-Loup. It is by collecting and selling the Eiderdown, one of the best quilts in the world that the company began to buy these islands in the St. Lawrence River.

  • Great place, great accommodation, great service, fine cuisine and you are looking for. An experience of a night and a day is sufficient in view of the small size of the island and preservation. Nice boat arriving with lucky tour we crossed of belugas.

  • This beacon put 1862, on the St. Lawrence River, and it was abandoned for 100 years. In 1989, he, Phoenix, revived, as a hotel. In the Elysee Federal only three double rooms and a common living room, decorated in the spirit of the last century. However, for fans of nedotorkanogo environment and bird symphonies is a wonderful offbeat option. The telescope on the tower you can observe birds.

  • Unique place in the world, go live the moment of a day or a night in one of the most beautiful lighthouse of Canada located on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence facing Rivière du loup River. We spent a magical night we will never forget.
