Discovering the Magic of Lac Beauport

I recently had the incredible opportunity to explore the breathtaking wonders of Lac Beauport near Quebec City, Canada, and I couldn't wait to share my experience with you. It's a hidden gem nestled in the heart of nature, offering a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

I travelled to Lac Beauport with three teenagers and a tween. Needless to say I was looking forward to carving some alone time with the lake while the teens were occupied by other activities. The lake felt like a scene out of a postcard designed to fuel dreams.

The Magic of Lac Beauport

I ventured on the lake the morning of our first full day there. I chose a kayak and paddles I felt comfortable with, put on a life-vest, and took a deep breath. I was planted firmly in the now, paddling my way to the middle of the calm waters, indulging in the quietness of the moment.

I gave myself permission to close my eyes and couldn't help but feel an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility. I floated away not worrying about anything or anyone. I cherished the silence in between my breaths, only perturbed by the occasional boat passing-by on the horizon.

I also went on a journey of observation. The surrounding natural beauty was awe-inspiring. The cottages and houses surrounding the edges of #LacBeauport were so well designed you would think they belong in the Hamptons. Each house was equipped with a dock anchored by a boat and protected by the lush greenery of trees, bushes, and shrubs. The sun was high up dispersing its rays to warm the lake and cool me off. Discovering lac Beauport was turning out to be everything I had imagined.

The Nearby Forest Hike

In addition to kayaking, I embarked with the kids and a tour guide in tow into a nearby forest for an invigorating hike. The lush foliage, vibrant wildflowers, and gentle rustling of leaves created an enchanting atmosphere. It was like stepping into a fairytale as we followed winding trails that led us deeper into nature's embrace.

The knowledgeable tour guide took us on an expedition of discovery. We learned to spot beer-making plants, cancer-healing herbs, edible and inedible mushrooms, poisonous cherries, wild blueberries, and bark-making tea. Along the way, we encountered a couple of streams with water as fresh as any spring, a resting place with lake front views and mountain-bikers.

The towering trees on our path provided some much needed shades with their protective vegetation creating the perfect setting for the sounds of birds chirping and frogs croaking. It was a symphony of nature that was both invigorating and peaceful.

A Sanding Beach

Of course, no trip to Lac Beauport would have been complete without immersing ourselves in the refreshing embrace of its pristine lake waters. The kids, who came along, had a blast as we all dove in for a refreshing swim. All of our worries melted away and were replaced by sheer joy and exhilaration. The coolness against my skin was invigorating, leaving me feeling revitalized and connected to nature.

If you're seeking a #getaway that combines natural splendor with thrilling adventures, consider adding Lac Beauport to your travel bucket list. Whether you choose to kayak on its tranquil waters, hike through breathtaking forests or simply indulge in moments of pure bliss by swimming in the lake – this destination has it all.

Remember, sometimes it's in these moments surrounded by nature that we find our true selves and create memories that last a lifetime. I did find parts of myself in the magic of Lac Beauport and I hope my little traveling companion will always remember its feels.

Until next time, be kind to yourself and others and take care,
