Both located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, Chaudière-Appalache and Center-du-Québec are well worth a visit.

Chaudière-Appalaches is 200 km (125 mi.) of coastline along the St. Lawrence, a 21-island archipelago, Lévis and its superb view of Québec City and Château Frontenac, the Appalachians and the myriad activities there year-round, stunning fall colours in the Beauce and Etchemins valleys, and more!

Come enjoy Centre?du?Québec’s lovely country villages and views of the St. Lawrence River. Cycling specialists agree that Centre?du?Québec stands out for its scenic countryside and, in particular, its wide shoulders, which make it a very safe region for cycling.
