If you seek fun, adventure, discovery and something new, find your Holy Grail in Mauricie! This is where great restaurants roll out the carpet, where microbrewers let you in on their secrets, where culture permeates your activities and where spas swaddle you up in wellness. Here are some ideas that will make your trip with friends or family a huge hit!
For the Curious Traveller
The Musée québécois de culture populaire carries on its mission to highlight Quebec pop culture by featuring the miniature train from Montréal’s old Dupuis Frères department store until April 5. Kids will be invited to climb aboard! Check out the Fishing Stories exhibit to see the fish paintings by artist and fisherman Benoît Desjardins or drop by the Poutine Shop exhibit displaying photos of French fry stands by photographer Michel Tremblay. A feast for curiosity-seekers!
Let’s Have a Pint!
If you’re going to talk microbreweries in Mauricie, the famous Trou du Diable is sure to come up, and with good reason – its beers are known the world over, the food is great and the decor adds unique flair to the place. A similar gem called Le Temps d’une Pinte is located in Trois-Rivières. The craft brewers there specialize in beer creation, gourmet coffee roasting and fine bistro dining. A must-see!
GEOS SPA, Hôtel Sacacomie
A Bit of Refinement
Sacacomie is a hotel that welcomes with distinction thanks to its Best of Nature package that includes a cozy stay, a delicious buffet breakfast and an unforgettable four-course dinner. You also get one-day access to the GEOS SPA for total relaxation in a romantic, picturesque setting between the lake and the mountains, not to mention access to the snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails and equipment. Simply charming.
Refinement is also what you get at KiNiPi spa et bains nordiques, for a larger-than-life spa and Nordic bath experience in a rustic-chic decor! Relaxation is guaranteed thanks to superior facilities and a fine dining restaurant to boot.
Make a date with discovery in Mauricie this winter, just a 90 minute drive from Montréal or Québec City!
