An Autumn Weekend...
Autumn is magical in the Outaouais. Not only do other regions pale in comparison to our colours but there something in the air (warmer than the rest of Québec, by the way) that just exudes our local specificities. A trek in Gatineau Park will convince you, especially if you hike all the way to the lookout on Wolf Trail. You'll think you're hallucinating colours! We strongly recommend that you take not one but two days to truly appreciate this unique spectacle.
