Heaven for cyclists: the Petit Témis bike path

Built on the track of a former railway, the Petit Témis linear park is the first interprovincial cycling network in Canada. It connects Rivière-du-Loup, in Quebec, to Edmundston, in New Brunswick. Made up of 134 km of stone dust trails, the park has several rest stops, lookouts and campsites, and is entirely reserved for cyclists and pedestrians. You’re sure to fall under the spell of the Petit Témis, not only for the beauty of the panoramic views that border it, but also for its relatively flat terrain, with a maximum slope of 4%, making it accessible to everyone! Make the most of your ride and visit the national park thanks to two ferries that cross Témiscouata Lake and take you from shore to shore. A beautiful 24 km loop!

Pohénégamook Lake is particularly renowned for its magnificent one-kilometre beach of fine sand. It is one of the most beautiful fresh water beaches in Quebec! Canoes, kayaks, pedal boats and paddle boards are available for rent, and the beach is also home to the largest inflatable water game in Quebec, promising hours of fun. There are also volleyball courts. A pavilion offers a large patio where you can have a bite to eat or a drink! Keep in the know, as activities are organized throughout the summer (beach party, stargazing, storytelling, etc.). On site, a campground offers more than 80 sites where campers can spend the night under the stars.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of this historic site, which is a reconstruction of a British fortification built in 1839 on the shores of Témiscouata Lake during a border conflict between the United States and Canada. A guided tour and exhibition rooms teach visitors more about the history of the region. It is also possible to spend the night at the Fort and sleep in the dormitory for an extraordinary experience.
