Saint-Germain-de-Kamouraska is the smallest municipality of Kamouraska. The centre of the village and its rural roads can easily be travelled on foot or by bike. Look for the La Run de Lait brochure on their website to help guide your journey into learning about Saint-Germain’s life and history. The bird’s-eye view of the 2nd Rural Road is worth the detour! Rising before your eyes is a display of spectacular views, terraced landscapes and vast fields neighbouring forest land. The views of the village and of its church steeple are surrounded by steep-sided rock mountains (known as cabourons in French) and a blue-azure river in the background, inviting you to take a moment and meditate… Leave your vehicle at the centre of the village or at the Chalet des Cabourons and hike the Sentier du Cabouron hiking trail, one of the most beautiful in Quebec. Inspired by leaving nothing behind ethics, walk along the ridges of the cabouron on a 4,3 km path. Read the interpretative panels at both entrances and near the observatory to learn and appreciate the geology, geography and riches of this very special place. Walking back to the village via the Rang Mississippi with its many trees and curves will complete the 8,5 km circuit. Why not end your journey with a picnic in Hélène Migneault-Labrie Park. On the corners of the Saint-Germain and Road 132 routes is where you can immerse yourself in the beauty of the La Croix des Chemins, a work of art signed in 1850 by Louis Thomas Berlinguet and restored in 2020 by the sculptor Benoi Deschesnes. Further east is where you will find the Famille Michaud-Asselin Marker and, a little bit further, the enchanting Pointe Sèche Circus which begins at dusk. Why not stay longer and spend the night in one of the many lodges and approved camping sites. From July 17 to 24, you are invited to the Kamouraska Painting Symposium and meet the painters and artists!
