Curious about nature?

If you love flowers, plants and nature in general, Parc Marie-Victorin is the destination for you! This year, the park inaugurates its 7th theme garden with Mysterious Carnivores, an exhibition featuring carnivorous plants. These bewitchingly charming plants are represented in three different universes: the greenhouse, the outdoor circuit and the exhibition dedicated to popular culture. A must-see exhibition this summer!

Aspiring detective?

If you dream of being a private detective, investigating and looking for clues, then set off on a mobile app discovery on the Billy Stuart Circuit (activity available in French only) for guaranteed family fun! This quest, based on the famous Billy Stuart cartoon character popular with young readers, is aimed at children ages 6 to 12, and will take you along the roads around Victoriaville and the Arthabaska area to complete various missions while discovering the region.

Up for a bit of this and that?

If you want a trip that is equal parts relaxation and sporting adventure, you’ll find what you need at Hôtel Le Victorin in Victoriaville. It’s the ideal place to recharge your batteries before hitting the roads of Centre-du-Québec on two wheels. Cyclists and motorcyclists can take advantage of secure parking and storage facilities designed with them in mind. And after your ride, retreat to cozy comfort and make the most of the hotel’s spa, swimming pool and gym.

Outdoor sports fanatic?

Lastly, if you’re all about outdoor fun, head straight to the Parc régional de la Rivière Gentilly. This regional park is where you’ll find cottages, ready-to-camp units and 80 campsites for a full immersion in nature. Outdoor activities abound there, too! Whether you prefer hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding or obstacle courses, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The park also offers trails and facilities for people with reduced mobility.
