Nearby attractions

A Sea of Mountains

Imagine a place with a permanent backdrop of mountains. In the dining room, on the balconies in your room, on a hike... Sometimes stretching as high as 1,000 metres into the sky, they mirror the equally spectacular deep valleys. Everywhere the air is pure and the silence intact...and your change of scenery guaranteed.

More Moose Than People

On this vast almost virgin territory, there is a rare diversity of plant and animal life. Caribou, white-tailed deer and moose...Be attentive: there's a very good chance you'll see them. The plants are also surprising. From dense fir stands to sparse stretches of tundra, the species vary with the landscape.

Chute Hélène Waterfall

The 50-metre-high Chute Hélène waterfall plunges into a basin of crystal-clear water. You can admire it from the Lodge and relax while listening to its song...
