Go for a walk inside nature

Centre d’interprétation de la nature du Lac Boivin

Begin your escapade by taking a walk in the trails of the Centre d’interprétation de la nature du Lac Boivin, located near the heart of the city of Granby. Besides filling your lungs with fresh air, you’ll be able to observe many different animals and aquatic species. For those who prefer cycling sports, note that the Granbyenne bike path goes around Boivin Lake and covers a distance of ten kilometres.

Enjoy a delicious lunch

Madame Hortense

Stop by Madame Hortense, a charming Café de village established in an old Granby factory. You’ll have the most delightful lunch here: paninis, quiches, soups, salads… More so, you’ll find incredibly decadent homemade desserts. Try the sugar pie or the mille-feuille and accompany it all with a delicious cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk!

Meet the most adorable animals

Verger champêtre – Gîte & Compagnie

Here animal lovers are well taken care of! Barnyard birds, goats, sheep, deer, alpacas, miniature horses … the animal park of Verger Champêtre groups more than 250 animals and they all have their own name! Go for a walk with Sibeau, the adorable alpaca, feed Chouchoune and Capucine, the very friendly deer and say hello to Charles and Diana, the swan couple. Depending on the season, you will, of course, be able to pick your apples, but they also have garlic, cherries, plums, pears and squash.

And… Spend the Night!

The Ferme D’La Mère Poule

You don’t want to leave just yet? Well, no worries because, the Verger Champêtre also offers guest lodgings. The farm accommodation of D’la Mère Poule can welcome up to 6 people in its three rooms. Entirely equipped, this unique lodging will have you experience an authentic country stay. Then, the following morning, you’ll still find plenty of activity options right here, in Granby.
