Sleepy Mauricie is one of Quebec’s lesser-known regions. A wonderland of wide open spaces, thick forests and languid lakes - nature lovers will be in their element here. Mauricie holidays are the time for hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing as well as plenty of wildlife watching and watersports. Take a trip in a Rabaska (a traditional canoe made from tree bark) and fish for lake trout and pike, all the while keeping your eyes peeled for bears and moose. Tear down the Rivière Saint Maurice on a jet-ski for a hair-raising adventure or enjoy a more serene hike to appreciate the scenery up close.
