Tee-up at the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Golf Club

The Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu Golf Club in Quebec is home of 27 world-class holes of golf. While keeping the essence of the original design, Darrell Huxham managed to showcase the natural beauty and esthetics of the Charlevoix region. First impressions always last. You will not be disappointed with the improvements that the golf course is able to offer to golfers. At every point, you will be able to admire the landscape and the great design that the St. Lawrence River offers to each visitor. The panorama is breathtaking.

Discover La Malbaie, from peak to peak

With more than two centuries of history, La Malbaie is considered the cradle of resort vacationing in Canada. It is here that the first white-sailed ships, with many rich Americans on board, arrived looking for the beauty and change of scenery that the region has become famous for. The Malbaie River winds its way towards the other end of the bay, making for a beautiful view, and its walking path, clearly visible at low tide, links both ends. As a tribute to the river and this beautiful region, here are a few walking suggestions to help you flow towards the peak at your own pace.

Enjoy a VIP whale-watching experience with Croisières AML

Less than 2.5 hours away from Quebec City, meet 13 species of marine mammals aboard the AML Grand Fleuve's VIP bridge, specially designed for whale-watching. Onboard this vast ship, the bilingual naturalist guides will teach you more about the giants of the sea and the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park, one of the most beautiful whale-watching sites in the world. During the three-hour cruise, enjoy an exceptional panoramic view, all in an eco-responsible manner and with respect for marine mammals.
