Head West to the Pontiac - Tourisme Outaouais

The westernmost region of the Outaouais, the Pontiac is unique for many reasons. You get a feeling of remoteness as you travel through this territory dominated by the Canadian Shield. Although it's in Quebec, the English language predominates. Over the years, the Pontiac has welcomed several immigrant communities (German, Polish and Irish) as well as the wealthy lumber barons of yore, including George Bryson. You can stay at George's place, now the Spruceholme Inn, where his great-granddaughter Jane Toller will tell you all about him. The inn is located right next to the PPJ Cyclopark, built along a former railway corridor that linked Quebec to western Canada in the 19th century.
