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.
Numerous cruise ships set sail from Quebec City. However, other ports like Montreal, Sept-Iles, and Sorel are also very popular.© Compassandcamera / iStock
