5 Breathtaking Lakes in Québec Friday 18 November, 2022

Quebec is a large province with a variety of places to visit. You can travel more than 1,000 kilometers from Quebec City and not get halfway to the province’s northern coast. It is incredibly huge, untamed, and unspoiled. However, you do not have to travel for days to get to Quebec’s breath-taking wonders. Several of Quebec’s top locations are too good to miss, even scattered a few hours from the major cities. With some preparation and an adventurous spirit, you may easily see a portion of this beautiful nearby region.

Look at some of the breath-taking lakes to visit in Quebec below.

1. Lac à l’Eau Claire

Lac à l’Eau Claire Lake is encircled by the Laurentian Mountains, spans two municipalities, Saint-Élie-de-Caxton and Saint-Alexis-des-Monts, and has a circumference of 42 km. Ile Margaret, a cute tiny island, is another feature of the lake. The Saint-Alexis-des-Monts side of the lake is quite popular, in contrast to the Saint-Élie-de-Caxton side, which is not very touristy. It is an excellent location for water sports like canoeing and boating, fishing, and bear and beaver watching.

2. Lake Manicouagan

Lake Manicouagan is an annular lake situated at the center of Quebec, created by a meteorite millions of years ago. The lake is also the second-largest natural lake in Quebec and covers an area of 750 sq mi. In the south of Lake Manicouagan is located Daniel Johnson, one of the biggest dams in the world.

3. Lake Kipawa

Lake Kipawa has various arms, coves and bays, which form hundreds of tiny islands. The lake’s average depth of 104 m, which contributes to its unusually gloomy appearance, is another distinguishing trait. The lake’s dark waters and asymmetrical shape are believed to resemble a big spider web when viewed from the air.

4. Lake Sacacomie

Lake Sacacomie, also in Saint-Alexis-des-Monts, is shaped like two adjacent rectangles and has a circumference of 42 km. These two rectangles are divided by two peninsulas that meet at Grosse île, the island in the middle of the lake. There are five islands and deep coves altogether in Lake Sacacomie.

5. Lake Tremblant

At the foot of Mount Tremblant is Lake Tremblant that runs approximately 15 kilometres. It is a notable feature of the scenery as you ascend the mountain, even if you cannot see it from the village of Mont Tremblant. Like the corresponding national park, the lake is especially beautiful in the fall. The area ranks among our top five spots to see fall foliage.
