Right now, our priority is to make sure you have a pleasant and safe experience the next time you visit tourism businesses in Centre-du-Québec. Given that the establishments in our region will be reopening gradually, we’re asking that you communicate with these businesses directly to plan your trip. They can tell you their opening hours, the activities they’re offering and any sanitary guidelines they’ve implemented based on Public health instructions. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Alternating between lowlands and the Appalachian foothills, you’ll explore rolling landscapes.  You’ll find Sainte-Sophie charming, particularly when the hills don their fall colours, enhancing the spectacular views that this small village is known for. Continue to Saint-Ferdinand where you can stay and admire Lake William surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains.
