The Mauricie region is a genuine, naturally beautiful region located in the heart of the province, only 90 minutes from Montreal and Québec City. It sets itself apart with its proximity to both city and nature, and that's great, because no matter where you are, you can enjoy the bustle of the city and the calm of nature all in a single day. Authentic and inviting, generous with open spaces and rich with culture... a pleasure to discover!

Trois-Rivières, what’s not to love!

Île Saint-Quentin is a great outdoor destination in Trois-Rivières. Located in the heart of the city, it offers visitors of all ages a host of fun things to do: wilderness camping, a day at the beach, outdoor movie theatre, interpretation bridge and hiking trails. In the evening, there are lots of options for food and drink downtown, including the Saint-Lau, where you can enjoy a bite to eat while watching the last rays of the sun caress the St. Lawrence River. Then, end the day in style at a cozy hotel... to be well rested for the next day of your vacation!

Re-energize in Shawinigan

Nature lovers in search of fresh air will love La Mauricie National Park. Go hiking, biking or paddling in the heart of this natural jewel where lakes and forests abound. Once you've filled up on nature, head to the terraces by the Saint-Maurice River, such as the one at Le Trou du Diable microbrewery, for a good beer and a good meal. The next day, climb to the top of the Cité de l'énergie or stretch out your legs at the Parc de l’île Melville.

La Tuque, a combo of nature and adventure

Route 155 is a scenic route along the Saint-Maurice River. When you arrive in La Tuque, you will discover a little-known region that is full of surprises. The downtown area is the perfect place to eat, rest or enjoy some live music. And if you are passionate about the outdoors and adventure, this place is definitely your version of heaven. La Tuque is home to more than 60 outfitters, a dozen zecs, endless forest roads and the famous Gouin reservoir.

Save on your trip to Mauricie

What a great summer!
