Chemin Perreault

This road offers a breathtaking 360-degree view on the fields, farms and mountains in the distance. Bask in the area’s serene ambiance and, if you’re as lucky as our cycling experts were (twice!), come across deer along the way.

Fromagerie La Station

Must-try cheeses at this renowned artisanal shop include Alfred le Fermier, Comtomme, and Hatley—all are well worth the stop. And while you’re there, visit the new Économusée de la Fromagerie Fermière, a museum that offers a multi-sensory experience dedicated to cheese and farming.
