June 29 to July 5: Sweet dreams in unconventional places in Outaouais – Take 2
The curious lodgings that we previously suggested were of interest to you? Here are three new suggestions that will make your stay in the region a memorable one!
Sleep in a tipi at Domaine Bitobi
Just minutes from the La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve is the Domaine Bitobi, an amazing private property of several hundred acres located on the shore of the picturesque Gatineau River, in the Haute-Gatineau region. In addition to the rental cabins and campground, you can sleep in on of the two tipis! Imagine this: fishing in the morning, swimming in one of the many lakes in the afternoon, relaxing in the luxurious sauna or outdoor Jacuzzi in the evening, and top it off by spending the night in the tipi. Do I need to say more to convince you that you deserve a stay in this exceptional natural setting?
Looking for an eco-friendly lodging experience? We’ve got a place for you! Solisterra offers sleeping in an eco-cottage sitting directly on its own sandy beach, in the heart of a magnificent estate of 350 acres. The Solisterra cottages, which can accommodate up to 16 people, are built of straw bale and feed off solar energy. Enjoy the beautiful weather while making sand castles on the beach, fishing, canoeing, or cycling on the 5 km of private roads in the area (which connects it to 80 km of the Trans-Canada Trail), then finish your evening around a campfire, roasting marshmallows, and rediscovering the magic of the night sky.
A true paradise for outdoor lovers!
Hibernate for the night in Laflèche Cave
Although much of the action is spent in the air at Abraska Laflèche, an incredible adventure awaits you in the most popular cave of the Canadian Shield. Aside from visiting the cave as part of a guided tour, you can also choose to spend the night in the cave itself. To liven up your evening, gather around a bonfire and let the guides share fascinating stories about the area and its surroundings. Please note that this activity is for children of 8 years and over, and a minimum of 8 people is required to reserve.
