Find your perfect picnic place

We suggest two perfect picnic places at Lévis Forts National Historic Site:
  • Take a seat on a picnic table directly inside the fort
  • Climb a few steps, put your tablecloth on the ground and enjoy the breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence River while eating your meal on top of Fort No.1!

The Perfect Picnic is also available at the Fortifications of Québec National Historic Site and at Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site
