What's on in the Outaouais March 20-26
Yes, life has been disrupted by preventive measures, but it goes on! Here are a few ideas for activities in the Outaouais. And don’t forget to keep your distance, wash your hands before and after your outings!
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RESTAURANTS
From Old Hull to St-André-Avellin and Maniwaki to Fort-Coulonge, the restaurants in your part of the region need you! Buy a gift card for later, ask for delivery. Here are a few great places to inspire you.
SO MANY TRAILS!
Fresh air and the tranquillity of nature are what’s needed right now, and there are trails to explore throughout the region. Did you know that the Forêt-la-Blanche Ecological Reserve is home to one of the last old-growth forests in Quebec? Admiring trees that are several hundred years old is good for you, no doubt about it. There’s also the Route des Zingues, one of the most beautiful sections of the National Trail. In the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, Mount Morissette and its 13 km of trails are well worth a visit. For more suggestions, visit our hiking page.
BORROW A BOARD GAME
Some parents are going to have to stay home with their offspring. To help pass the time, rent a game from L’As des jeux! And if you want to buy one (without leaving the house), shipping is free for purchases of $69 or more!
In Gatineau: 325 Gréber Blvd., Unit E-1B. In Aylmer: At the Galeries Aylmer, Jean Coutu entrance, 181 Principale Street, Gatineau
BECOME A GEO-RESEARCHER
Explore your territory in a different way: go on a treasure hunt! Download a geocaching application on your phone (there are several free ones), bring a pencil and a few trinkets, and go on an adventure! You’ll be surprised how many hiding places there are in your neighbourhood.
