The meeting of two opposing currents in tidal waters, green waters and cliffs, fingers of rock and sediment surrounding l’Isle-aux-Coudres, trees decked out in fall colours as far as the eye can see, and golden fields in the summer sun: That’s right, we’re delighted to give you a drone’s-eye… uh, we mean bird’s-eye view, of Charlevoix…

For centuries, the landscapes of the Charlevoix region made the area famous, and appeared prominently in both the work of military topographical artists painting at the time of the colony’s beginnings, and in the works of art produced by the acclaimed Group of Seven… But as great as those artists’ talents were, here at Go Charlevoix, we take great pride in offering you a perspective on the local landscape that no one back then could have imagined!

Fully-certified and accredited, we’ve been collecting aerial views from one end of the region to the other and all year 'round, for more than a decade already. We still enjoy the surprise of seeing places that we’ve seen many times before with fresh eyes. That’s what motivates our technical team to get up at dawn, check the winds and barometric pressures, and plan, check, and secure areas for our drone flights, time and time again with the dedication of hunters: scenery hunters!
