Those wanting to maximize their enjoyment can opt for something really different: spending a night in a tent, a yurt, a cottage or a cabin in the trees, a truly exceptional adventure. The supply of wilderness accommodations is vast and varied, in both the Lanaudière and Mauricie regions, including yurts offered by Chalets Lanaudière, oTENTik tents in La Mauricie National Park of Canada, and Hékipia tents in the Rouge-Matawin, Mastigouche or Saint-Maurice wildlife reserves. With their many lakes, the two regions offer splendid campgrounds featuring waterview campsites. After a day spent camping or swimming, you can toast marshmallows or gaze at the heavens before retiring for a good night’s sleep. Life is good, isn’t it?

NOT YOUR AVERAGE ACCOMMODATION
How would you like to stay in a tent, a yurt or a cabin in the trees on your next wilderness trip? The Lanaudière and Mauricie regions have partnered to offer visitors original accommodations in a beautiful natural setting.
At the camp ground Parc écotouristique de Lac-Édouard, you can pitch your tent alongside the Batiscan River or stay in one of the park’s ready-to-camp prospector tents. Canoeing on the lake is a favourite activity. Another close-to-nature lodging option is staying in a yurt with a view of the water in Parc de la rivière Batiscan. Don’t miss the park’s via ferrata overlooking the river, the tree adventure tour and the walking trails. Lastly, those who have always dreamed of sleeping in the trees can experience it for real in one of Kabania’s cabinitas or cabins on stilts.
This enchanted little village is located at the entrance to Parc régional de la Forêt Ouareau, an ideal place for hiking or snowshoeing.
