Chemin du Roy

Official Website

The first road open to vehicles in Canada

Completed in 1737, the Chemin du Roy was the first road linking Québec City and Montréal and is considered the longest artery for traffic and communication developed in the north along the St. Lawrence River. The Chemin du Roy hugs the shoreline of this great waterway and is dotted with places and names that bear witness to over three centuries of history, reflecting its rich heritage.

A panoramic and historic road that extends 102 km from Maskinongé to Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade

Turn off the highway and follow the crowns! In the Mauricie, the Chemin du Roy winds its way through postcard villages along the river. Breathtaking views of rustic and urban landscapes will have you stopping time and again to enjoy a feast for the senses. Visitors are enchanted, too, by the many delightful discoveries along the way - quaint villages, historic sites, one-of-a-kind attractions - where history, heritage and culture mix and mingle. You’ll fall under the spell of this lovely, smiling countryside suffused with the sense of days gone.
