A summer of treats and magic in the Coaticook River Valley!
Explore the stunning area of the Coaticook River Valley in the Eastern Townships. Generous rolling hills create gorgeous scenery, and the numerous agricultural producers promise to seduce your palate with homegrown delights. Visit lovely villages and discover their heritage as you tour various tourist attractions that never fail to impress.

Bite into the region!

Taste a slice of paradise at Miel Pur Délice, a honey producer where you’ll find sweet treats made on site and where you can learn about the marvellous world of beekeeping on a fascinating guided tour. You could even take part in a beekeeper-for-a-day activity and see the hives in the field. Do you always wait until autumn to go to the apple orchard? You can actually get fresh apples right now at Verger Le Gros Pierre, where the White Transparent, Vista Belle, Jersey Mac and Melba varieties are available from mid-July to August. Anyone want some ice cream? Coaticook is home to one of the largest and most popular ice cream manufacturers in Quebec, and now is the perfect time to taste the three new flavours sure to sweep foodies right off their feet. Let yourself be tempted by the refreshing cinnamon roll, rum-raisin and salted caramel flavours! And with a new soft serve flavour featured every week, you’ll be aching to go back!

Parks for 100% outdoor fun!

The Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook is a must-see! It offers 4-star certified camping (tents, RVs, ready-to-camp options) and many activities, including a hiking trail that leads to the longest suspended pedestrian bridge in North America! And at the Parc Découverte Nature, you'll find the perfect spot to learn about fishing with family or friends! Go pond or fly fishing, then sample your catch on site after cooking it on the BBQ, and visit the hatchery to learn all about freshwater fish.

Activities for night owls

If you’re more of a night person, there are lots of things for you to do in Coaticook once the sun sets! At the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook, you can see the wonderful Foresta Lumina multimedia circuit developed in partnership with Moment Factory. Step into a magical world, whisper a wish to a fairy and discover the mysteries of the forest. Here’s another idea: a game of mini-putt on a glow-in-the-dark course inside a repurposed church at Glo Golf Aventures! Campers will also enjoy a stay at the Camping du Pont Couvert where they will find hiking trails, giant games and fountains you can control with music.
