A vacation to a secluded island of pristine nature… make it happen! Release your inner Robinson Crusoe and set your sights on a calm and peaceful getaway. In the Outaouais region, there are masses of islands sure to delight all kinds of adventurers.

A superb, little-known territory

In the Gatineau Valley you’ll find 136 islands dotted on the crystal-clear waters of the Trente-et-Un-Milles Lake. Whether your thing is rustic canoe-camping or all-out glamping and ready-to-camp units, there’s an island just perfect for you! At Village Majopial, boat rentals make it possible for campers to get to the 30 campsites, some of which can accommodate more than one tent. A surveillance crew patrols the lake daily to inform campers on issues related to environment protection and safety rules, and can also provide low-cost campfire wood.
