Outdoor Moments

Pedal through kilometres of mountain bike trails and sleep in a pod come nightfall. Ride along the treetops, near a pond or to the top of Mont Mégantic. See the sky in a whole new way through the lens of augmented reality or take a peek through Canada’s most powerful telescope. Paddleboard down a river, stroll through a bog, dive into a crystal clear lake to see a shipwreck. Scale a mountain, sleep at the summit, identify the 120 bird species that call the four national parks home.

Calling all nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts: These are just some of experiences that await in the Eastern Townships!

Family Moments

Make hundreds—if not thousands!—of memories with your kids in the Eastern Townships this summer. Where to start? For big thrills, try Granby Zoo and its 1,500 animal dwellers, Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook and Foresta Lumina’s mystical creatures, Bromont Water Park’s epic pools and slides, and Capelton Mine’s fascinating underground adventure. And of course, life is all about savouring small moments, like tucking in to a sweet treat at Musée du Chocolat or a giant maple chip ice cream cone at Laiterie de Coaticook. Oh, and did we mention the smell of s’mores on the campfire?

So many choices, so much time to enjoy as a family.

Moments of Zen

If peace and quiet is what you’re after, know that there are plenty of spots conducive to a restful retreat in the Townships. There are, of course, the world-renowned spas (Spa Eastman, Balnea, Strom Spa, etc.), but also plush resorts that treat guests like royalty, a glorious abbey (Saint-Benoit-du-Lac) that opens its doors to visitors (don’t leave without treats made by the monks, including artisanal cheese), a cruise ship (Le Grand Cru) that sails Lac Memphrémagog and serves delicious meals, historic inns surrounded by pristine gardens…

At every turn, an opportunity to savour a sweet moment of serenity.
