What to do this week-end - May 29-31

Plan some things for this weekend, but also, by following our « must-do » list of suggestions, you can look ahead to the summer too – hikes with the family (and Fido!) and a brand new cycling section. And how about an outing to a public market?

Not to be missed attractions to note in your diary

Breathtaking tourist routes, renowned (and about to be renowned!) cheese makers and national parks that are a veritable paradise for outdoor lovers. The list goes on…..Great ideas for this weekend but also for the weeks to come, so block off some dates!


Walks with the family

Many people made going for walks a priority during the period of confinement. Now you can double the pleasure, by hiking with the kids in a variety of beautiful locations.

Walks with the dog

Maybe you don’t have children but a dog that is also dying to get some real exercise? Here are some places where you can go for a walk with man’s best friend!

One word of warning! Before setting out, make sure you familiarize yourself with the best hiking practises as well as specific instructions regarding the pandemic.

Stop by a market and pick up some organic plants

This Saturday, there will be a sale of organic plants (10am-4pm) at the Marché de la Gare in Sherbrooke – a great opportunity to load up on greenery and at the same time, take a walk around the Lac-des-Nations.

Most public markets open towards the middle or end of June, but some are already in full swing, among them Melbourne’s Country Market and Sutton’s Public Market. Both are open on Saturdays.

Our collaborator, the journalist Yvan Martineau, went for a smooth ride on the Circuit du Patrimoine, near Bedford, Standbrige East and Saint-Armand. A perfect tour for a season beginning... and a real magnificent area to discover!
