Urban Walk and Restaurant

In Bromont, you’ll select the sentier du Réseau villageois trail that runs along the city (the trail head? At the Town Hall). You’ve built up an appetite? Then find a table at Le Cellier du roi, Le Royal Bromont golf course’s fine restaurant, for a quick lunch while offering yourself the bonus of a Zen scenery.

All-Inclusive Stay at Jouvence

You’ll settle in, in the heart of the Parc national du Mont-Orford, at La Petite Auberge de Jouvence, with 24 rooms exclusively reserved for adult visitors. Set by a brook, this portion of the enormous park venue is absolutely charming. You’ll take advantage of your stay to head up Mont Chauve, a great nine-kilometre hike via the Ruisseau-David, and starting in the parking area of L’Érablière. Some of Jouvence’s “assets”? Their all-inclusive formula (they even prepare a lunch box for you when you leave on your adventure for the day), the excellence of their table, the friendly welcome and the view overlooking Lake Stukely.

A Gourmet Trip

You’ll create your special foodie outing by downloading the Créateurs de saveurs application. To jog your memory, Créateurs, are the expression of our Townships’ terroir, where a myriad of products from some 175 agri-food enterprises are showcased. Thanks to the app, you can choose the treats you’re tempted to try among 14 categories (sweet, salty, pastries…) and concoct an itinerary that will immediately make your mouth water.

Nature and Vineyard Combo

In Granby, at the Centre d’interprétation de la nature du lac Boivin, you’ll enjoy a pastoral panorama as you walk along the wooden footbridges and trails (covering about 10 km). You could also climb the observation towers from where you can spot great blue herons, kingfishers and even some otters. You could then head out to the superb Vignoble de la Bauge. Winemaker Simon Naud has created an ecosystem here, where humans, farm animals and grapevines coexist. It’s quite an accomplishment, since some of these animals play a major role in the maintenance of the vineyard. As for wine tastings, they’re served along with specialty foods such as their pâté made with boar meat, from their livestock. A most impressive visit! (Available until November 14, 2020)

Off the Beaten Path

Au Diable Vert, in Glen Sutton, is where you’ll find a peaceful environment. To enjoy the outdoor centre and all the trails to the fullest, you’ll book one of their pod cabins, true intimate cocoons. Let’s get a fire started in the wood-burning stove, you’re on your way!

Discoveries and relaxation

You could also buy two « Road trip découverte et détente à Sherbrooke », offering you each a 40% discount on different access rates. Here we go! to Strom spa, in Sherbrooke; to Musée des Beaux-arts de Sherbrooke; to Musée d'histoire de Sherbrooke and to a four-wine tasting experience at the Halte des Pèlerins vineyard.
