Who hasn't dreamed of a day spent lounging on a vast sandy shore and walking for miles without reaching the end? That's exactly what you can do on kilometres of shoreline at Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon. Close examination of the sand reveals a world of splendour: garnets, zircon, lodestone...a fabulous wealth of beautiful semi-precious minerals. Boating enthusiasts and swimmers love the exceptionally warm water of Lac Saint-Jean. The park's cycling network starts just a few steps from the beach. It totals 45 km, 16 of which are linked to Véloroute des Bleuets.
Starting December 10, you can book your 2014 stay in a Huttopia tent, Hékipia tent or a tent trailer at the national parks, wildlife reserves and tourist resorts. Families, couples or groups of friends, discover the joys of camping without having to bring your own equipment! Shop >
