Lanaudière spreads from the St.-Lawrence River to the dense coniferous forest of the Laurentian massif.
Awash in a sea of blue and green, this region boasts a national trail, two wildlife reserves, a national park and over 10 000 lakes and rivers teeming with trout and pike. Moreover, there are no less than eight regional parks that offer hiking trails in a breathtaking setting. Numerous waterfalls accentuate the area’s beauty, which all nature-lovers are intent on keeping unspoiled. From the islands of the Lac Saint-Pierre archipelago, a UNESCO World biosphere reserve, to the Atikamekw reservation of Manawan to the north, traditions are passed down in an environment whose charm is both pastoral and untamed.
