The Chaudière Valley

A landscape sculpted by time

The Chaudière Valley is part of the Appalachian landform, flattened by the great glacial invasions from the past. On this Appalachian plateau, the Chaudière River dug a wide furrow  that still bears the marks of the early settlements in the region.

The Chaudière River

Some 185-km long, the Chaudière River begins its course in Lake Mégantic, in the Estrie area, in south-eastern Quebec, and flows to the north to meet St. Lawrence River in Lévis, on Quebec City's south shore. It is one of Quebec's longest watercourse.
