North American Van Lines: A Matane, Quebec Moving Company That Literally Holds Nothing Back when Coming at Your Move with Full Force
Situated upon the southern shores of the Gaspé Peninsula facing the Saint Lawrence River, the town of Matane makes for a prime located piece of regional real estate across the far ends of eastern Quebec. Interestingly, the official borders of Matane encapsulate the closely neighboring towns of Saint-Luc-de-Matane and Petit-Matane. Originally, the namesake of the town derived from the early 17th century title of the nearby river on which the town would effectively go on to establish settlement across—“Mantanne,” whose debated meaning most likely refers to something similar to a beaver pond –the fact that the region is reputable for its large population of local beavers seems to reinforce this notion.
Even in modern times, the town tends to revolve around this heavy influence originally derived from its local proximity to the significant Mantanne waterway. Residents of the town can even expect to enjoy ongoing ferry services that make trips back and forth across the river, ferrying residents to and from north shore communities, including Godbout, Baie-Comeau, and more. It is also worth noting that the community utilizes a rail ferry service, making use of less common train ferry technology to ferry residents to the communities of Baie-Comeau and more.
Due in part to the town’s longstanding history dating back to as early as 1603, the modern town has given rise to something of a noteworthy tourism industry in recent years. It certainly also helps that the town is regarded as something of a “first step” for those touring through Matane and into the popular tourist circuit of Gaspé. Matane features popular seaside cuisine, as well as a historical lighthouse that now serves as an outlook and visitors centre for the town.If these highly unique features and more appeal to you when in search of the next community to refer to as your home, the moving professionals at North American Van Lines can help you get there in record time.
