With an area covering more than 1, 000 km2 and 210 km of shoreline, Lake St-Jean is an impressive inland sea offering fantastic scenery, beautiful tributary rivers and sandy beaches that will take your breath away. As a matter of fact, this lake is so large that you can’t see the opposite shore from wherever you are most of the time. With its beautiful beaches and rivers the Lac-Saint-Jean allows the population to enjoy different water-related activities. Canoe, kayak, sailboat trips, kite and stand up paddle are only a few. This region also has the highest catch limit in Quebec (ten instead of six) and is considered to be a paradise for fisherman.
