Located midway between Montréal and Québec City, Trois-Rivières thrives as both a cultural capital and port city. Its lively downtown area, near the river and the trendiest spots, makes Trois-Rivières an obligatory stop on Québec’s tourism circuit.
Nestled on the banks of the St.Lawrence River where it meets the mythic Rivière Saint-Maurice, the city charms visitors with the contrast of attractions and activities that it delights in sharing. Chill out on a terrace with a drink or linger over a great meal, or be stimulated by Trois-Rivières’s dynamic museums and eclectic festivals. I n the summer, it’s too difficult to choose between a stroll on the riverbank, a boat outing on the river, or a dip at Île Saint-Quentin. Why not do all three? Take time out to reflect on your stay while watching the ice breakers in winter on the St. Lawrence. Then there is the excitement of kiting on frozen Lac Saint-Pierre, or a heart-warming tour of the art galleries, shops, cafés and bistros!
