This area’s strategic geographic location, running along the St. Lawrence River to the Ottawa River, and the presence of the Canal de Soulanges—the first lock canal ever to be built in North America—have played an important role in shaping its history. The Soulanges sector features a bike path of over 35 kilometres, the last stretch of the Route verte No. 5 cycling network before it hits the Ontario border, making it a fantastic destination to discover on two wheels. Immerse yourself in the region’s flavours by visiting its local vineyards, farms, maple sugar shacks, and charming cafés and bistros you’ll find along the way. In summer, the Coteau-du-Lac National Historic Site offers a fascinating glimpse into the area’s past, while the Saint-Zotique beach and both ends of the canal transform into fun, festive places to make the most of the warm weather.
