Charlevoix Travel guide >> Isle-aux-Coudres


An Oasis of Green Pastures

The Isle-aux-Coudres was discovered by Jacques Cartier during his second voyage in 1535. For centuries, the island was used as a halt for ships coming from Europe. Nowadays, the island is accessible by ferry from Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive. It quickly became an important maritime centre, and visitors can still learn about this maritime history.
