Baie Comeau Travel Guide
Welcome to Baie Comeau!On the banks of the Mancouagan River and St. Lawrence River is Baie Comeau. Located about 400 km (250 mi) north of Quebec City, this location is the home town of former Prime-Minister Brian Mulroney. Founded in 1936, the town of over 20,000 people is a hub for logging in the area, which is rich with natural wealth. Also, because of it's close relation to the waters, hydroelectricity is an important export of the area, with the Manicougan Reservoir dam producing a huge quantity of power for Quebec electrical grid. Visitors in town will be in awe of the natural wonders of the area, and can learn about the wildlife at the Maison de la Faune, or the Centre Boreal du St-Laurent, where they can receive guided tours of the local hiking trails. Sports enthusiasts can watch the local hockey team, the Baie-Comeau Drakkar at the Centre Henry-Leonard. And any trip to the area wouldn't be complete without exploring the waters of the Saint-Lawrence River, the most important water way in Canada and one the largest rivers in the world.
