Joyful colours of autumn

TRAVEL, EXPLORE, EXPERIENCE

 

BORÉALIS
Located in the former filtration plant of the Canadian International Paper Company in Trois-Rivières, Boréalis shows the human face of the paper industry: lumberjacks, log drivers and factory workers. Several activities are available onsite in addition to an interpretive city walk on the factory’s influence.

MUSÉE POP AND OLD PRISON IN TROIS-RIVIÈRES
There are two quite unique and outstanding landmarks in Trois-Rivières. The first one is the Musée POP which offers a perspective into Quebec popular culture from then to now. The second is the city’s old gaol–part of the national prison heritage– which gives a very realistic overview of life in prison. The Delta Trois-Rivières provides nearby accommodation, and it is possible to book rooms with a view on the river.

OUR LADY OF THE CAPE SHRINE
Well-known to pilgrims, the Sanctuary also welcomes tourists from far and wide. Its majestic location by the St. Lawrence River and its religious heritage attract pilgrims and tourists alike. It is possible to take part in several activities and events.

MOVE, BREATHE, GO ON AN ADVENTURE

LA MAURICIE NATIONAL PARK
Canoeing on beautiful lakes and rivers, hiking in colour-crazy forests, following beaver tracks with a naturalist guide, hearing a northern barred owl hooting in the middle of the night from across your oTENTik tent. Fall is a marvelous time to be outdoors and get some fresh air.

MONT-TREMBLANT NATIONAL PARK
The biggest park, and also the first one, in the SEPAQ’s network. Mont-Tremblant is perfect for taking in the autumn scenery while you hike or bike. The trail La Chute-aux-Rats is a must. Camp onsite to immerse yourself fully in the beauty of fall.

SHAWINIGAN, A FOOT IN THE WILDERNESS
The town of Shawinigan is set in a region that boasts vast forests, and when autumn comes around everything lights up in a flurry of colours. Take a guided tour to observe the black bear in its natural habitat or to gather edible ingredients in the woods. While in an urban setting, take a walk on the wild side.
