Saint-Félicien team's favourite tourist activities
"One of my favourite attractions in Lac-Saint-Jean is the Domaine des Trois-Îles for its enchanting and unique site. Moreover, the Parc de la Chute-à-Michel is ideal for a quiet walk in nature. I also like to go to the beach in the municipality of Saint-Prime to relax peacefully on the warm sand and chat with friends.”
"I will never forget my experience in the Photogravie Quebec observation tower, located in the heart of the boreal forest. I have fond memories of watching a family of loons, a beaver swimming peacefully in the lake, as well as observing different species of birds throughout the day.
We were also treated to a spectacular sunset! After dark, we were visited by the stars of this enchanting place: the flying squirrels. The guide in charge of transporting us to the tower is full of knowledge and very interesting to listen to!
Another of my favourites is the discovery cruise on Lac Saint-Jean with guide Charles Dufour (Aventure Lac-Saint-Jean). During the cruise, Charles speaks passionately about the lake and its history, which dates back to the fur trade.
The information given to us by the guide often creates links with other tourist sites in the region, such as the historical village of Val-Jalbert and the Amerindian Museum of Mashteuiatsh. Beautiful moments on the majestic Lac Saint-Jean in perspective!”
The Val-Jalbert Historical Village, located in Chambord, allows you to immerse yourself in the 1920s. Visiting the site changed some aspects of my perception, as I was able to learn more about the way of life of the villagers of the time.
I enjoyed the entertainment, especially at the convent school. The nun told us some old anecdotes and a few jokes. They know how to use humour to captivate their audience!
I also highly recommend the Amerindian Museum of Mashteuiatsh. During my last visit, the ephemeral exhibition featured skirts made by the women of the community. Behind each skirt, each embroidered design, and each symbol was a fascinating story
Then, the new permanent exhibition "Tshilanu Ilnuatsh, We the Ilnuatsh" is just as enriching. It is possible to listen to recordings in Nehlueun (Ilnu language) and to learn to recognize the songs of birds that inhabit the territory. It is really a very interesting and instructive museum on the First Nations, more particularly on the Ilnu of Lac-Saint-Jean.”
"One of my favourite attractions in the MRC Domaine-du-Roy is the Amerindian Museum of Mashteuiatsh. What impressed me during my last visit was the archaeology initiation workshop. This activity allowed me to learn more about the basics of this discipline, but also about the Aboriginal culture.”
