Train on Quebec City–La Malbaie railway line.

Tom Robinson


Charlevoix is a stunning outdoor playground. In summer, the brilliant blue sky is matched by the deep azure of the St Lawrence, while the hills, lined with hiking trails, are carpeted in green. Fall brings colorful foliage, and in winter, snowcapped mountains loom above the rural valleys. For 200 years, this pastoral skein of streams and rolling hills has been a summer retreat for the wealthy and privileged. Of late, it has become Québec City's preferred retreat from the stresses of city life.
