A land of history and culture, the Mauricie region stands out with many museums and industrial sites that recall trades of the past. The vast areas of wilderness make it a sought-after destination for outdoor activities as well as relaxation. Whether you’re in downtown Trois-Rivières or up in the valleys of the Canadian Shield, fun, educational activities are yours to enjoy.

From the Lac St-Pierre to La Mauricie National Park, Maskinongé offers an incredible panorama. For a change of scenery and new flavours this summer, Maskinongé is the place to go. Foodies will want to start with a walk in the vineyards followed by a wine, brandy and gin tasting on the terrace of Domaine Gélinas in Saint-Sévère. For a day out in nature, a unique expedition awaits in the swamps and flooded forests and the Safari in the bayou at Domaine du Lac Saint-Pierre in Louiseville. There’s also much to discover in the maze of giant cedars at Labyrinthe Coureur des bois in Saint-Mathieu-du-Parc. Lastly, how about a tasting of natural beers made with fresh ingredients, while you sit comfortably in the beer garden at the Brasserie Dépareillée in Yamachiche. (Website available in French only)
