OUTDOOR FAMILY FUN

Your family wants to get out of the city and reconnect for real? For city dwellers who don’t own outdoor equipment (and don’t have room in the car), we have an elegantly simple suggestion: a weekend at the Base de plein air Air-Eau-Bois outdoor centre. No need to bring the cooler—you can book the Family Vacation package where meals are included. If you’re coming from Montreal, we have some great restaurant recommendations along your route. And we’re off!
