Welcome to our Guide to Victoriaville
A small town located South-west of Quebec City and East of Montreal. Known for being a gathering point of Snow geese in autumn.
How to Get Here
The city is about 3 hours drive away from Montreal. I take the bus which may not be the fastest but the most comfortable way to get there. Arrived in Victoriaville terminal, a 30 minutes walk brings you to Reservoir Beaudet.

The best time to visit this place is during the first days of November to watch Snow Goose (Anser caerulescens). It is a gathering place for this species during the migration South. An opportunity to watch and photograph flocks of thousands of Snow geese.
Don't miss though small nature reserve around the estuary. It provides opportunities to take photos of shorebirds and waterfowls. You can get to the level of the water, river and lake for spectacular photos.
What to See Here
Although place of an interesting estuary ecosystem and the opportunity to spot species living in this habitat, the main reason to visit this place is to watch Snow Geese during migration in early November, as the reservoir serves them as gathering point on their way South.
