Forestville – Bike Path
This 13 km long bike path begins in the village of Portneuf-sur-Mer and runs along the St. Lawrence until it reaches Forestville. Minke whales keep you company along this trail, especially in June and July, the period when capelin are abundant in the area. After a rest stop on the benches along the path, continue onward and don’t forget to scan the horizon: large rorquals also frequent the sector.
What they’re saying: “Our bike ride was simply fantastic. We discovered a peaceful spot with intermingling aromas of sea and forest and a fabulous view of the St. Lawrence. In a word, this is an activity that we will undoubtedly do again.”
