Landscape

The scenery of Île d’Orléans is an attraction in its own right. Twelve interpretive panels tell you more about the St. Lawrence River and the island’s architecture, landscape and farms. (Starting in 2012–2013.)

The historical borough of Île d'Orléans celebrates Québec's rural tradition with its gorgeous scenery stretching along the banks of the St. Lawrence River, only a few minutes from Québec City. Visitors are encouraged to experience the rich and vibrant culture of this island jewel, which is the birthplace of New France. Inhabited since time immemorial, Île d'Orléans has a diverse offer of first-rate attractions.
