With more than two centuries of history, La Malbaie is considered the cradle of resort vacationing in Canada. It is here that the first white-sailed ships, with many rich Americans on board, arrived looking for the beauty and change of scenery that the region has become famous for. The Malbaie River winds its way towards the other end of the bay, making for a beautiful view, and its walking path, clearly visible at low tide, links both ends. As a tribute to the river and this beautiful region, here are a few walking suggestions to help you flow towards the peak at your own pace.
