L'Isle-aux-Grues – Montmagny Ferry
Hop aboard the L'Isle-aux-Grues–Montmagny ferry and walk in the footsteps of famous artist Jean-Paul Riopelle as you discover an island renowned for its natural beauty and delicious cheeses. The island is home to many species of birds, including the thousands of migratory geese passing through in the spring and fall that were such an inspiration for Riopelle’s work. Hence it is considered as one the best Greater Snow Goose observation sites.
The photo treasure hunt is a great way for families to discover the weather vanes and bird houses dotted all over the island. You can find a leaflet about this at the ferry terminals.
Breathe in the salty air, feast your eyes on the brightly-coloured houses and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets in this idyllic landscape. Since there’s only a short stretch of road on the island, it’s an ideal spot to explore by bike. Why not combine your visit to the island with a bike ride along the shore in Montmagny?
Because the tides change on a daily basis, it is important to plan your return before travelling to the island.
