From its strategic position, Larouche is at the crossroads of main routes and at the border of two regions: Saguenay’s urban agglomeration on one side and, on the other, the town of Alma and the beginning of the vast agricultural plains of Lac-Saint-Jean. For those wanting to escape from the bustle of city life, you’ll enjoy serenity and nature while living close to large urban centres and roadways. Larouche is a residential municipality along the railway line and focuses on the future, as displayed by the contemporary styles of the church and school. Older houses are a reminder of the past. A belvedere built atop a peninsula reveals phenomenal panoramic views of the municipality and surrounding woodland areas. Larouche offers a fine dining restaurant, two hiking trails, an exhibition centre, and a snowmobile relay in the Cascouia area.
