What to do this week-end - December 22-23

Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises

Wondering what to do before the holiday marathon starts in earnest ? How about an outing to a museum, a jaunt around Magog on a Fat Bike, trying out an unusual winter sport or an evening excursion with the family ?


Immerse yourself in the world of Paul-Émile Bourduas

Sherbrooke’s Fine Arts Museum is currently showing an exhibition entitled La révolution Borduas : espaces et liberté featuring the work of one of Quebec’s most famous artists. Bourduas died 58 years ago, but this collection of paintings and photographs, some of which have seldom been shown in public, still speak to us today.

Until March 24, 2019 |  Musée des Beaux-arts in Sherbrooke


Rent a Fat Bike and explore Magog and its surroundings

Vie de Plein air in Magog, an establishment that rents out sporting equipment, has its grand winter opening this weekend – a great opportunity to hire a Fat Bike and pedal along the nearby bike trail ! Another option is to make believe you’re a kid again and rent a snow scooter. What could be more fun than that ?

Vie de Plein Air, Magog | Fat Bike rentals start at $17.39


Try skijoring, a fantastic, fun sport!

Skiing with a horse? Wow ! That sounds fantastic and indeed it is. Ski Joering Stukely-Sud offers this unusual winter sport, which is becoming more and more popular in Quebec. The horse pulls you through the forest and as the skiers whizz along, they jump over little obstacles along the way. Everybody from novices to expert skiers can give it a try. Equipment rentals are available on site.

Ski Joering Stukely-Sud | $20 per person for one hour
