Ile aux Lievres

Île aux Lièvres, an incredible hiker’s paradise!Tapered at the ends, this island reminds some of a ship, while others consider it the world’s smallest continent! An impressive 13 kilometers in length, it cannot be fully explored in one day. Discover natural lookouts, explore deserted beaches edged in brier roses, find a seal dozing on the upper part of the beach… Both wild and inviting, Île aux Lièvres will enchant you.Ten kilometers across the water from Rivière du Loup, Île aux Lièvres is one of the best kept secrets of the estuary! Get there in just twenty minutes aboard a Duvetnor boat. The network of hiking trails is vast and diverse (45 km), with trails ranging in difficulty from novice to expert, the level of each clearly marked on the map you will receive upon landing. As a bonus, there are no dangerous animals, no stinging plants (no poison ivy, in particular), and far fewer mosquitoes than on the coast. Plus, refreshing ocean breezes, dwarf forests, escarpments, endless beaches, driftwood… And yes-scores of memories to be made (camera a must)!

Just so you know, most of the falls are artificial (provided by a hydroelectric facility) but impressive and fun nonetheless. Good system of trails, marked from easy to difficult. Good place to stop and stretch your legs if you're traveling along Route 20

Not as pretty as I thought it'd be. Exploration centre was high-priced.

I love nature and discovering new outdoor places but this was a disappointment. The mountains across the river were beautiful, don't get me wrong, but the scenery lacked that jaw-dropping effect. It was overcast and foggy so that may have affected my over
