Must-have fun on the water

The Haut-Richelieu is a great place for boating, and you will definitely want to paddle on the Richelieu River, take an electric boat or even sleep on the water... yes, that’s right! Aloberge and Flotel both offer one-of-a-kind floating accommodations! And if you’re aching to go to the beach, head for Missisquoi Bay and Lake Champlain in Venise-en-Québec for a refreshing day, or take a cruise!

Lively summer shows for all

Plenty of events are happening in the Vieux-Saint-Jean area, from July 4 to August 28. There will be about fifty outdoor comedy, music, dance and even improv shows. And don’t miss the return of the International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the must-see hot air balloon festival, from August 12 to 21, with performances from Charlotte Cardin, Hubert Lenoir, Loud and many other artists.

A whole host of activities

The Haut-Richelieu charms foodies with the Picnic Routes, which allow you to discover delicious homegrown products from vineyards, cheese factories, delicatessens and more. Cycling enthusiasts will adore the region as well, thanks to cycling routes that invite everyone from families to experienced cyclists to explore at their own pace.

Visiting the Haut-Richelieu is also an opportunity to reconnect with your inner child at Uplå, a new Arbraska park with amazing trampolines at the foot of Mont Saint-Grégoire. Another favourite of big and little kids everywhere is Parc Safari. Climb aboard a new electric bush truck and head out on a safari with an experienced guide: you'll learn everything there is to know about the animals you'll see along the way!
