An adventure in the Petite-Nation

Start your adventure in Quebec's southernmost wildlife reserve. The Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve has more than 600 lakes to delight fishing enthusiasts. Discover the park's many attractions, including the observation tower at Lac Lanthier where you can watch ducks, moose, and white-tailed deer; the exceptional views from the Devlin, Resther and Bondy mountains; and the sandy beaches of Lac Écho, Lac Joinville and Lac Marie-Le Franc. On your way back from this enchanting spot, stop in Montebello, one of Quebec's most beautiful villages. Visit the Fairmont Le Château Montebello, the world's largest log building, where you can relax at the spa or lounge on the terrace (BBQ available seven days a week!). In the village, sample products made by talented local artisans. Cheese, chocolate, craft beer ... they make great souvenirs of your trip!

Réserve faunique de Papineau-Labelle

Large sandy shores where children can make the most beautiful castles! Calm lakes where you can set out aboard a canoe, a kayak or a pedal boat! The lakeside log cabins are quite remote—some are even on their own island. Peace and quiet guaranteed!
