The river

This important river is fed by the waters of several major tributaries and has its source in the Chic-Chocs mountain range located in the heart of the Gaspésie. The incredible freshness and clarity of the waters of the Bonaventure River have earned it its Indigenous name (Wagamet: clear waters). This jewel is internationally renowned and legendary because it is among the best rivers for salmon fishing in the North Atlantic. A stay on the Bonaventure will enable you to discover a river recognized for the beauty of its landscapes and natural environment.
