The L'Île-Verte ferry is your ticket to exploring the charming, idyllic landscape of Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs (known as Île Verte), a place where serenity meets rugged beauty.
This island in the Lower St. Lawrence region is a great place to reconnect with nature, offering spectacular views over the St. Lawrence Seaway and the mountains of Charlevoix, with sunsets that will take your breath away. Since the main dirt road linking one end of the island to the other is only 13 km long, it’s an ideal spot to explore by bike or by foot.
