Initiate Yourself to Ice Climbing

Parc de la gorge de Coaticook

Try something new by learning how to ice climb at the Parc de la gorge de Coaticook.

Climbing is possible Saturdays and Sundays from 11 :00 a.m. to 4 :00 p.m. from mid-January to mid-March.

Travel back in Time

Café Central in Coaticook

A true institution in downtown Coaticook since 1961, the Café central proposes a comfort food menu in which you’ll find veal blanquette, chicken à la king, salmon pie of course; plus, classics such as burgers, poutine, hot dogs and submarine sandwiches. All this served in a retro decor reminiscent of the old American diners!

Sleep in a Yurt

Auberge du changement d’ère

Head to Auberge du Changement d’ère for a night’s stay in their unusual lodging proposal, inside a comfortable and quite original yurt. Located a few steps from the Parc de la gorge de Coaticook, surrounded by a quiet and an inspiring nature, you’ll sleep the soundest of sleeps here.

Fill Up on Energy

Les Enfants Terribles Restaurant

To start the day out well, find your way to the restaurant Les Enfants Terribles, in Magog. Sit down in front of a delicious plate of French toast, eggs Benedictine, an omelette or one of their menu specialties, such as a breakfast poutine or homemade blood sausage on toast.

Try Uphill skiing

Mont-Orford’s ski centre

Experience Mont-Orford in a totally different way. With a pair of skis using climbing skins, you can access uphill ski trails all the way to the summit while working up a good sweat! After you’ve enjoyed the view, you can go down the slopes of Mont-Orford’s ski centre. You don’t have the proper equipment? No worries!
