Learn about the wildlife of Quebec and Canada at Parc Omega, located in Montebello, in the Outaouais region. Observe more than twenty species of wild animals living in semi-liberty in their natural habitat thanks to a wonderful circuit you simply follow in your car. You can also stretch out your legs by exploring the park’s walking trails, or taking the opportunity to go on an incredible nighttime walk for Omega By Night that includes a sound-and-light show, highlighting the beauty of nocturnal nature!

Immerse yourself in nature in the Laurentians

Fill up your vacation with outdoor fun

If you are planning a trip to the Mauricie region, opt for a stay at Hotel Sacacomie, a remarkable resort nestled in the heart of the forest and overlooking the impressive Sacacomie Lake, boasting a shoreline that is more than 42 km long. With such an amazing location, it’s no surprise that nature reigns supreme and that there are endless choices when it comes to enjoying the outdoors. Choose between canoeing, kayaking, a rabaska outing or a bit of hiking.

In the Montérégie region, facing Saint-François Bay, Hotel Plaza Valleyfield makes a great starting point for biking or water sports. From there, you will have easy access to a network of trails ranked among the 10 best bike rides in Quebec, or you can go kayaking and paddle boarding. And did you know the area is also known for scuba diving? Why not go for it?

How would you like to stay in the largest log cabin in the world? Then your destination is Fairmont Le Château Montebello. This place is beautiful in the fall, and while on vacation there, you have access to hiking trails and paddling on the Ottawa River, among other things to do. Some equipment and some activities are also available to visitors not staying overnight at the resort, including electric bikes and scooters that are ideal for exploring the village of Montebello, as well as access to mountain bike trails.

Relaxing in the heart of nature

Making the most of nature also means taking time for yourself and enjoying some relaxation in an enchanting environment. Bolton Spa is located at the foot of a magnificent waterfall in a site that allows for perfect harmony between nature, body and mind. Opt for a riverside massage, then recharge your batteries in the polar bath, outdoor spas, Finnish saunas, eucalyptus steam bath and heated outdoor pool.
