Birds, animals, and castles!

We have a nice (and long) week-end in store for you, somewhere between the castle life and the great outdoors. You will stay in the largest roundwood chalet in the world, the Fairmont Le Château Montebello. Discover the artisans of the village, including the chocolatier. The next day, a safari at Parc Oméga awaits. Armed with carrots, you will become best friends with elk, mountain goats and bisons. Then, enjoy the landscapes of the Petite-Nation at the Parc des Montagnes Noires in Ripon, or dog sled in Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix.
