The cottage rentals of the Mauricie region are situated along the northern shores of the St Lawrence River and throughout its forested interior.
Home to La Mauricie National Park, the Wildlife Reserves of Mastigouche and Saint-Maurice, and a myriad of lakes, rivers, and streams, the Mauricie lends itself perfectly to outdoor sporting recreations and wildlife watching. Hiking and biking are popular activities in the summer, while cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are favourites come winter. The region is also a preferred destination for anglers and water sport enthusiasts, who take to the waterways in canoes, kayaks, and white-water rafts. Hunters will enjoy their experiences with the area’s 75 outfitters.
The Mauricie is dotted with picturesque towns and villages, as well as charming boutiques and art galleries that display and sell local artisans’ work. As a main producer of maple syrup, the area is also the perfect place to tour a maple farm and sample products. The Mauricie plays host to array of annual events and festivals, such as the Grand Prix Trois-Rivières and the rodeo Festival Western de St-Tite.
Just a two hours’ drive from both of the province’s two major cities, Montréal and Québec City, the Mauricie region is one of the province’s popular cottage rental destinations.+ More
