The Grande Côte

Wander along the water trail

Take a trip through history along the water trail from Repentigny to Berthierville, via Île-Lebel Park and the breathtaking Berthier Islands.

In summer, drive along the historic Chemin du Roy or explore the Lanaudière wine circuit. Go sea kayaking along the Route Bleue des Voyageurs or bicycle along the Route Verte. In fall, come see the huge gatherings of wildfowl as they prepare to migrate south. Bird lovers, bring your camera!
