To discover, see and do...
Located in Sorel-Tracy, in the Regard-sur-le-Fleuve Park, Biophare is an Interpretation Center focused on the development of human and environmental factors associated with the Lake-St-Pierre Biosphere Reserve. Recognized by UNESCO, Lake St-Pierre represents an important international interest. Indeed, this territory is as rich of its heritage that it is of its exceptional natural environments. Biophare also presents temporary exhibitions for the general public and organizes cultural and educational activities targeted for schools. Visitors can also enjoy Randonnée nature, a cruise service that offers unforgettable getaways. The cruise allows sometimes to enter the “pays du Survenant” at the discovery of the islands of Sorel and some other times, to dive at the heart of the history of the region from the Richelieu River. A unique nature-culture experience!
