Your Summer Vacation at an Outaouais Resort 

Published on April 30 2024

Are you up for an exciting family adventure? Plan to spend your summer vacation at an Outaouais resort. Enjoy comfortable accommodation and a wide range of activities in a single location where youll find everything you need for a magical time. Forget the long journeys and endless detours: everything is in place for a pleasant and uncomplicated stay! 

Get back to nature


Kenauk Nature

When you arrive at Kenauk Nature, make yourself at home in your ready-to-camp unit, rustic yurt or private lakeside cottage. The next day, head out on a guided fly-fishing trip, explore the area in a rabaska canoe, or get out your paddleboard. 

You’d rather stay on dry land? Opt for a mountain bike adventure, then go for a hike. If you’re feeling adventurous, test your limits by tackling a climbing tower, or try clay pigeon shooting. Round out the day with a relaxing session in a floating sauna, gazing at the starry sky. 

There are several meal options. Order takeout from the Marché de l’Outaouais for delivery to the Kenauk Nature reception desk, go upscale with the services of a private chef, or book a table at one of the restaurants in the village of Montebello.
