James Bay
After your visit to the Robert-Bourassa generating facility you may head to Baie James (James Bay) and the last generating station on the Grande Rivière: La Grande-1. Your first stop: the Upichiwun lookout that pays tribute to the Crees, who have lived in the Baie-James region for thousands of years. This spectacular vantage point over the surrounding land is also a window on our history: the entire hydroelectric development and the many structures built to preserve the boreal forest’s fauna and flora are clearly visible. Next comes a visit to the second lookout ont the other side of the La Grande-1 generating station. It is Québec’s second-largest run-of-river power plant, where you’ll be impressed by the decidedly modern civil engineering.
