Megantic Region

The Megantic region attracts visitors not only out of curiosity and a calling to return to personal heritage sites, but especially to enjoy its amazing setting. It is the perfect place to connect with nature along the lakes’ shorelines and around every bend through the back country. From Mount Mégantic to Lake Mégantic, a loop route on the Summit Drive takes you up hill and down dale, from earth to the stars, with breathtaking landscapes as an added bonus. Authentic villages will welcome you after a not-to-be-missed stop at the only Quebec provincial park with an astronomical observatory open to the public.
