Notre-Dame-du-Portage vue du quai

Situated right on the coast of the St. Lawrence River, with Ile aux Lièvres (an island) just off shore, the municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Portage has been, for over 150 years, a well-known vacation spot. With its heritage of historic buildings, its river-dominated landscapes, its islands and Charlevoix’s mountainous coastline just across the river, Notre-Dame-du-Portage has earned its place in the Association des plus beaux villages du Québec (an association of Québec’s most beautiful villages). Its place name recalls the old purpose for the site. It was the beginning of the historic chemin du Portage or portage track between the St. Lawrence Valley and Acadia during the colonial era.

Today, because of its nearness to the town of Rivière-du-Loup, the municipality is a sought after place of residence. There are several reputable lodging establishments as well as the Rivière-du-Loup regional airport.
