Thanks to a variety of offers, this destination is a place where you can combine nature, cultural discoveries and outdoor activities, not to mention a place where you’ll find accommodations to suit all tastes and budgets.

Appreciate the beauty of nature

This road trip is perfect for contemplation. If this speaks to you, consider a stop to admire the extraordinary purple fields of the Bleu Lavande lavender farm or a visit to the Miellerie Lune de miel honey farm, where you can learn more about the intricate work of bees. You could also choose to take a lovely stroll on the Lac-des-Nations Boardwalk or discover the Art & Mosaic Tour, which will impress you with giant horticultural mosaics. End this memorable day with a glass of fine wine at La Halte des Pèlerins.

Soak up the culture

How about starting your trip with a gourmet cruise on the Memphrémagog Lake on board the Grand Cru cruise ship and follow that up with a tour of the Sherbrooke Murals, which is just like an outdoor art gallery. Continue your trip by visiting the museums that explore fine arts, science and nature or history. Sherbrooke really is a choice cultural destination. Your itinerary could then take you on the must-see Townships Trail to appreciate the city’s beautiful architecture.

Take a breath of pure fresh air

If your legs are feeling restless, this trip is sure to be perfect for you. Whether you choose a bike ride, a canoe or kayak outing, a round of golf or a hike, you’ll find the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors. And just in case you stretched yourself a bit too far and you end up with muscle pains, plan a reenergizing spa day at Strøm Spa, a haven of relaxation boasting exceptional natural beauty. Once night falls, prepare for the unforgettable adventure of Foresta Lumina at the magnificent Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook. This enchanting nighttime trail reveals a magical universe of textures, sounds, colours and lights, and opens up on a world of fantastic creatures. Totally amazing!
