The Saint Lawrence River Canada

Discover The Saint Lawrence River

In the south of the country, the impressive Saint Lawrence River crosses Quebec over more than 620 miles, crossing the regions of Manicouagan and Duplessis, before pouring itself into the Atlantic Ocean. Most Quebecois live on the land bordering the river, many in Montreal and the surrounding area. The nature is well preserved, and national and provincial parks or animal reserves are plentiful.
