People go there for cycling and water sports or to relax in its vast green spaces.
Once a centre of the fur trade, Le Pôle des Rapides lends itself to boating in all its forms. The most daring can offer themselves the total experience and confront the impetuous rapids, aboard a super powerful jetboat or on a rafting excursion. The shores of the St. Lawrence River are also a refuge for migratory birds. Sports and nature lovers, take note. Filled with a vibrant community spirit, the sympathetic Verdun district, with its typical spiral staircase houses, dynamic shops and lively cafés and restaurants will charm you.
