Like, for example, Quebec's Bonaventure River. Situated near Bonaventure, Quebec, in the Gaspe Peninsula, this river is actually the most stunning thing I've ever stumbled upon.

That's not all, though. The water is also a really intense emerald green colour; literally, imagine chilling in clear, emerald green waters... that sounds pretty magical to me, TBH. Check out all the stunning views of the Bonaventure River, friends:
