12 Reasons to Drive Out to the Valcourt Region

The pretty Saint-François River; Melbourne, Richmond, Racine, Ulverton … all pure little jewel towns and villages; hills and valleys, waterways … and so many other things to see and experience. Here are 12 of them, just to get started!

Some of our suggestions may no longer apply because you know why? Make sure you have the information you need before you leave, and if you can’t go right away, find your inspirations and take some notes for later!

  • Visit the Musée de l’ingéniosité J. Armand Bombardier
    To learn more and understand the great importance of the man and his company, which goes far beyond our borders. Exhibitions about our means of transportation, Fab Lab workshops, virtual games, and so much more!
  • Attend The Grand Prix de Valcourt
    The world’s most important snowmobile event! The gathering place for hundreds of snowmobiles, activity-filled days for everyone and because it happens only once a year. When? February 11, 12 and 13, 2022.
  • Plan a unique stay at Lao Cabine
    Nestled up high in the trees, in a comfortable modern cabin, in Racine. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sliding, all turnkey!
