Day 47: Auberge Internationale de Québec to Camping Municipal du Rocher Panet

Leave Québec City and ferry across the St. Lawrence into the town of Levis. Have your camera ready as the ferry ride provides a great opportunity for photos.

From the ferry dock you will bike along the St. Lawrence before meeting up with HWY 138 on the east side of Levis. The ride along 132 to L’Islet will take you through small picturesque towns that all have spectacular churches and friendly people. You will bike on HWY 132 until reaching the New Brunswick border in Miramichi.

Montmagny, population 11 654, is a good place to get groceries before you arrive at the campground in L’Islet. The town is Canada’s Snow Goose Capital and home to the International Accordion Festival every September. If you need bike work done here, check out Intersport.

Across from L’Islet is L’Isle Aux Grues (goose island). The main industry on the island is dairy farming. The people of the island produce some of the finest cheese in the world including their most famous brand, “Riopelle de l’Isle.”

Your destination for the evening is Camping Municipal Du Rocher Panet in L’Islet. The municipal campground is a nice spot to spend the evening. The campground has internet as well as laundry facilities. Next door to the campground is Tibo Bicyk, a high-quality bike shop with knowledgeable staff.
