Far from the stresses of everyday life, in the untouched decor of the boreal forest, lies a secret paradise for lovers of nature and trout fishing. A haven nestled in the heart of the wide open spaces of the Haute-Mauricie region.
The forestry roads that you drive down to get here already set the tone. Here, you’re free to fill up on fresh air and majestic landscapes. And all this comes with hotel services worthy of 5-star ratings in the heart of an immense territory boasting eleven private lakes. To optimize your experience, choose the American plan, which offers comfortable nights in a room or fully-equipped cottage, tasty regional cuisine skillfully prepared by the chef and his cooks and access to numerous activities and relaxation facilities such as spas and saunas.
If you like being active, you’ll have a field day swimming, paddling on the lake or walking through the woods during a geocaching adventure. But the site’s flagship attraction is trout-fishing – Némiskau means “where the fish abound” in the Atikamekw language – and all packages include your fishing permit, a motor boat and gas. For a small additional fee, you can have a guide to accompany you on a memorable fishing trip, and afterwards, a massage therapist to help you recover from your thrilling day.
The Perseids: a shower of stars
Every summer, from the end of July to the end of August, a host of meteors overtakes the sky of the Northern Hemisphere. It’s undeniably the most spectacular and popular meteor shower of the year and you’ll have a front-row seat here to admire this grandiose shooting star show.
