Birds, animals, and castles!

We have a nice week-end in store for you, somewhere between the castle life and the great outdoors. You will stay in the largest roundwood chalet in the world, the Fairmont Le Château Montebello. There, is everything is family-oriented: indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, horseback riding, golf, etc. The next day, a safari at Parc Oméga awaits. Armed with carrots, you will become best friends with elk, mountain goats and bisons. Feel like giving an unusual activity a try? How about clay shooting? Spend the last day at Parc national de Plaisance, on the Zizanie-des-Marais trail and you might just see a bunch of turtles soaking up some rays.
