This summer, escape to the heart of wide open spaces and discover one of Quebec’s best-kept secrets. The area of Témiscouata in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region is bursting with gorgeous landscapes – and there are a thousand and one ways to explore them. Take the opportunity to go camping, or go for a bike ride or a swim and make the most of all the activities you can do.

Stay at the Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata

Do you love camping? Pitch your tent at the Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata and set out to discover the forest. If you don’t have all the gear you need for a camping trip, look into the ready-to-camp huttopia tents instead. These tents are furnished with beds and put cooking essentials and a heater at your disposal. Just bring your food and sleeping bags and you’ll be ready for a hassle-free trip! And that will leave you with plenty of time to plan for a special activity, a hike, a bike ride or even a canoe or kayak expedition. Look forward to a perfect vacation!

When in Témiscouata, choose biking!

Did you know that many bike paths in Témiscouata lead to stunning discoveries without ever having to go the same way twice? Take for example the 24-km (15-mi.) loop that connects the Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata to the Petit Témis Interprovincial Linear Park. Hop on the river shuttle that goes to the Cabano district and the ferry in the Notre-Dame-du-Lac district of Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac to get started. Other trails of varying distances can be found across the region, allowing cyclists to pedal at their own pace.

Beat the heat at the Pohénégamook beach

Imagine a long shore of fine sand along the most beautiful freshwater beach of Bas-Saint-Laurent. The municipal beach of Pohénégamook welcomes you for swimming and nautical activities. The giant inflatable circuit on the water promises hours of fun! And on site you’ll find a snack bar with a large patio and a campground. Keep your eyes peeled – you might catch a glimpse of Ponik, the legendary creature of the lake.
