Choose from a wide array of indoor and outdoor activities to please young and old.
Come—alone or with friends and family—and have a tea or coffee in a heritage building on Richmond’s Main Street, la rue Principale. Our dynamic, bilingual team, well acquainted with this part of the country, will have ideas and suggestions to make your visit Au Pays de l’ardoise an enjoyable and memorable experience. You will discover a picturesque region bisected by a fast-flowing river and graced with stately homes in the style of Anglo-American brick-and-slate architecture. You can have brunch in a converted convent and dine on one of the most beautiful terraces in the Eastern Townships. The only woolen mill in Quebec and the only slate museum in Canada await your visit. If you wish, you can glide in a canoe along the water or plan a scenic bike tour. Au Pays de l’ardoise, there’s much to delight the young at heart of all ages!
Because of the situation, different establishments have had to close temporarily, or modify their operating hours. We suggest you contact them before leaving home.

(Ring ahead to avoid the crowd... it’s that simple!)
