Charlevoix is a beautiful region of the province of Quebec in Canada. Famous for its idyllic topography of rolling hills and mountains adorning the St. Lawrence River, the landscape is actually the result of a massive meteorite that crashed down millions of years ago and created a deep crater nearly 60 km in diameter.

Charlevoix attracts visitors because of its agrotourism and regional fare, arts & culture, and scenic driving routes that highlight the region's many attributes. In addition the small towns that dot the region are lovely places to stop and soak in Quebec's history via the architecture and small-town charm.
