Welcome to Isle Aux Coudres!

In the middle of the St. Lawrence River lies Isle-aux-Coudres, an island first settled in 1728 and named by the explorer Jacques Cartier for its numerous hazel trees. The island is accessible via a ferry from Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive, known as the Traverse l'Isle-aux-Coudres. Today, Isle-aux-Coudres is a tourist destination full of history and entertainment. Visit various museums and historic sites to learn about the island's marine heritage and early pioneers, including Musee Les Voitures d'Eau, Musee d'Isle-aux-Coudres and Les Moulins de l'Isle-aux-Coudres. Bike tours around the island are a pleasant way to explore this gem but be sure to follow the directional signs as winds can be very strong. Several gourmet shops and restaurants on the island offer delightful dishes and treats, and at Les Vergers Pednault, visitors can roam through the orchards and pick fresh fruit and purchase jams, ciders and other artisan goods. A trip to this Charlevoix island will please guests with its natural beauty and charm.
