Discover artisans and fabulous
landscapes in the L'Islet
region of Chaudière-Appalaches! For a vacation lasting one or
several days, L'Islet is a beautiful destination that follows the
river. This summer, breathe in the seaside air while shopping,
sipping a drink or stretching your legs. Tempting, isn't it?
The charming municipality of
Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is known for its creative side and the artistic
workshops you can take part in to learn about wood carving,
lute-making, pyrography, jewelry making, copper enamel and more! You
can even borrow a bike to get around for free or one of the 4
electric bikes available at low cost and discover the village at
your own pace.
In addition to discovering the region's
must-see museums, such as the Musée maritime du Québec, the Musée de
la mémoire vivante, the Musée de la sculpture sur bois des Anciens
Canadiens and the Seigneurie des Aulnaies, you may even have the
chance to attend a festival, a party or a concert. Culture will be
celebrated in a big way this summer! You could see contemporary
dance performances in the middle of nature, listen to the sound of
sea chanteys or contemplate giant sand or wood sculptures. To find
out about all the cultural events and when they are happening, visit
the Destination Région L'Islet website.
