Here are some ideas for the fast-approaching holiday season, such as discovering the work of local authors and hikes in the fresh air! Just a couple of things you can get started on this weekend...

Gifts for Christmas

The festive season is just around the corner! The region is blessed with a terrific selection of boutiques and activities that will appeal to every member of the your family – no matter what their interests. Take a look at our special Christmas gift guide, which will provide you with some great ideas!

Select your own tree

One of the most fun activities for kids is to search for a beautiful Christmas tree. Across the Townships are Christmas tree farms where you can select your own evergreen to brighten your home throughout the festive season.

Discover our Townships’ authors

Curl up in a comfy armchair and let yourself be drawn into an entirely different universe, created by some of the region’s best writers. A number of authors use the Eastern Townships as a setting for their books – instantly recognizable to those in the know! Here are some reading suggestions and, of course, these books make great gifts as well!

Get outside in the fresh air!

A city stroll? A mountain hike? A wander through a forest? A contemplative rest beside a stream? A meander across some wetlands? There is a multitude of options for a walk or a hike that match your mood.
