It was on my mind to write about this walk we did back in early September, on a sunny day but the ground was slippery from rainy days before. The trail is rough. Although it is considered an intermediate – easy hike, it can be difficult for young kids. The park does not allow strollers. It includes a walk along the river, a waterfall and a steep climb uphill. I definitely recommend taking a child carrier backpack, or to hike with older kids.Read more
The place to go all year round with kids, but I prefer to keep it for a rainy day. So many stalls offering fresh vegetables, fruits and a lot of local product from Quebec!Read more
An excellent way to spend a day in the summer at Domain Saint Bernard. The park is packed with activities. Dip in the clear water and enjoy a canoe/kayak experience on Lake Raynaud. Circle the lake (2km) and exercise along 10 ultra-fun fitness station on the Wheeler Fitness Trail, visit the Birds Garden and watch the sun at the Velan Pavilion Observatory.Read more
Love trains? Exporail museum is the place for you! The perfect place for kids, you can definitely spend all day here! Rainy, or snowy days? Here we go. The big closed train hangar has a permanent exhibition where you can discover the evolution of Canadian rail transportation from the early years to modern time. During the summertime, there are also temporary exhibitions at the museum.
We visited the Canadian Railway Museum during one mid-November weekend when the theme ‘Magic of Christmas’ was on and we loved it. The Exporail museum had lots of Christmas decorations throughout!Read more
The place to learn about the Huron-Wendat First Nations history. Wendake is a reservation of the Huron-Wendat and is located in the La Haute-Saint-Charles borough of Quebec City. Just 30 minutes from Quebec City you will find this beautiful reservation, with a great walk to see Kabir Kouba waterfall and the Huron-Wendat Museum.Read more
I am happy to write about this hike as we were confused from the information about this walk when we first looked at it. Hopefully it will be easier to follow now.
This great park is totally worth the visit. It has three main entrances, Porte Ste- Béatrix, Porte St-Jean de Marta and Porte Ste-Mélanie. The Rivière L’Assomption crosses this park and offers three waterfalls which can be viewed from bridges. The walk – Sentier Desjardins which is described here is about 5km return.Read more
