Located 90 minutes north of Gatineau–Ottawa, Maniwaki has many fascinating activities to offer. Take a stroll on the picturesque boardwalk along the Désert River, and follow the pedestrian trail to the nearby golf course. You’re not far from the Forest Fire Prevention History Interpretation Centre and the Désert River, where you can enjoy an excursion in a rabaska canoe. To fully appreciate Maniwaki’s hospitality and dynamism, don’t miss the Festival d’été de Maniwaki, the Whitewater Festival and the Pakwaun winter festival, whose name means “thaw” in the Algonquin language.
