A One-Day Getaway - Heading Out on an Outdoor Adventure Road Trip
All the fresh air we can breathe here!
In the Morning…
Hiking in Bromont
We’re off for an amazing hike on the Lake Gale trail network in Bromont. Do we feel ambitious this morning? Let’s aim for the summit and its lovely view overlooking the lake and the mountains as we take on the intermediate to advanced level loop (6 km; 3 hours). You’d prefer a less challenging ballad? The lake loop (3.5 km; 2 hours) is perfect for stretching your legs. Psst! You’ll find plenty of other possibilities here!
We head to the Vieux-Bromont sector, a section of the town of Bromont which counts no less than two dozen great restaurants to satisfy all palates. Here’s an idea: Outarde jaune, « cantine sauvage », an initiative of the restaurant Le Chardo. On the menu: squid skewers, fried smelt, hare guédille (hare in a bun)… Not your ordinary meal!
About thirty kilometres further down the road, we find ourselves at the foot of Mount Sutton. Why? To go mountain biking, of course! Well adapted to all levels, this network of mixed surface trails set throughout the Sutton Mountains massif, covers a terrain of 32 kilometres. Sometime between now and the up-coming fall, Plein Air Sutton plans to add three more kilometres and promises to offer some bucolic views of the area. So, Let’s meet at the Expérience Sutton boutique where you can buy your tickets and find their services, such as bike rentals. Please note that a container food stand prepares poke bowls and other delicious treats on weekends.
At the Huttopia Sutton campground, you’ll discover the joy of “glamping” as you relax in a forest of maple, birch and ash essences traversed by a refreshing brook. The lodging offer includes sleeping in a rustic style tent, a trapper tent (with a full bathroom), or an all comfort chalet. Good to know: The restaurant menu includes pizzas baked in a wood-burning oven and other dishes in their take-out service. Their nature trail pathways and children’s game module are both open. All in all, it’s an outdoors activity centre on its own!
If your dream is to spend the night in an Airstream caravan trailer? Au diable vert
Will make your dream come true! Located in Glen Sutton, between alpacas and the forest, this outdoors centre also offers mountain apartments, tree-top shelters and other rustic lodgings.
To all cyclists: Ravito bed & bike has developed an autonomous touring formula which includes baggage transportation from one lodging to the next. Between four and seven days with itineraries that will take you through the rolling hills of Brome-Missisquoi and Memphremagog while you ride through the region’s Cœurs villageois town, the pride of the Townships!
