Route

Head for the hills

"There's something very satisfying about a visit to the Collines-de-l'Outaouais. Gorgeous scenery, well-maintained historic sites, excellent food … you can really sense the enthusiasm and pride of the local residents. And it's just 15 minutes from Gatineau!

For this getaway, we've lined up a full and active day. Pack a picnic lunch and head for Camp Fortune, where you can get in touch with your inner primate! Go wild as you leap from an 8.5-metre, 10-metre or 12-metre tower onto a giant airbag. Back on terra firma, break for  lunch, then stroll through the beautiful and peaceful grounds of the Mackenzie King Estate. At the end of the day, join the friendly crowd on the outdoor patio at the Chelsea Pub. "
