Photographer's Note

Ladies and gentlemen as we approach our final destination to Charlevoix airport, I'll invite you to look through the window, on your left you can see our 4500 feet runway (ok for small jet) before we turn final and the St-Lawrence River.
On you right (this photo) you'll get an idea of the landscape waiting for you for this short trip.

Charlevoix owes its spectacular mountain scenery to the earth-shattering impact of a 15-billion-ton meteor 350 million years ago. This collision blasted a crater 56 kilometers in diameter, making Charlevoix one of the largest inhabited craters in the world!

The Charlevoix region is named after the Jesuit priest François-Xavier de Charlevoix, New France’s first historian. Long ago, agriculture, trade, and logging were how people made a living. But little by little, tourism found its niche. Now it is the driving force in the region’s economy.

Finaly, Charlevoix is divided in six Secteurs : From Baie-Saint-Paul,Isle-aux-Coudres, The Shore Road, Hinterland, La Malbaie and the Marine park road, if you never been there, I think to come a long way round worth it.

Unfortunately, in my last vacation here a few years ago, I didn't have my camera with me, I'll sure have it with me next time to show you more. Thanks for reading, enjoy !
