A design to match the landscape

The Route des belvédères

Major attractions in the Matapédia-et-les-Plateaux region, in the southwestern part of the Gaspé Peninsula, the first two architecturally exceptional structures of the future Route des belvédères give visitors a spectacular view of the mountain and river landscape from lookouts designed with unique architecture.

Belvédère des Deux-Rivières

Deux-Rivières Lookout

MATAPÉDIA

Found at the top of a cliff in a twisted wooden tunnel form, the Belvédère des Deux-Rivières, located in Matapédia, offers a breathtaking view of the confluence of the Matapédia and Ristigouche rivers.

Belvédère Cœur des Plateaux

Cœur des Plateaux Lookout

SAINT-ANDRÉ-DE-RESTIGOUCHE

Standing on one of the highest points in the region, the Coeur des Plateaux Lookout in Saint-André-de-Restigouche is a twisted tower made of wood and metal. On its panoramic platform (360°), you will be able to admire up to 100 km of bucolic agricultural landscapes if the sky is clear.

Belvédère Horizon de rêve

Horizon de rêve Lookout

SAINT-ALEXIS-DE-MATAPÉDIA

Built several years ago, the Horizon de rêve lookout in Saint-Alexis-de-Matapédia offers a magnificent view of the Restigouche River. In a few years, as part of the Route des belvédères project, it will be replaced by a new structure with a distinctive architecture.

Two new lookouts to come

Saint-Alexis-de-Matapédia and L’Ascension-de-Patapédia

The Route des belvédères will include two more structures, the design of which will be unveiled by 2022. The current Horizon de rêve lookout in Saint-Alexis-de-Matapédia will be replaced by a new structure with a unique architecture. Also, a new structure with a unique design will be built in L’Ascension-de-Patapédia: the Cross Point lookout.
