A “natural” chef

Conversation and laughter are the order of the day as we serve up healthy and tasty food with a focus on fish and game. Feel like a second helping? No problem, because we know you'll want more. The chef knows just how to make your mouth water at every meal! And what about those famous soft bars ready to be slipped into your backpack when you leave for your day's expedition? You can't leave without asking for the recipe. But is the chef keeping it a secret? Only visitors to the Auberge will be able to find out.
Six mountains to explore
Attention all mountain lovers! The Auberge is surrounded by 6 peaks all over 770 metres high, just waiting to be explored. Coleman, 780, Nicol-Albert, Collins, Matawees, and Frère-de-Nicol-Albert – all these impressive mountains loom large in the midst of an absolutely enchanting setting. A mere stone’s throw from the Auberge, the nearby peaks, true symbols of open spaces, awaken a real sense of freedom in those who venture there. Now it’s your move! Time to head for the hills!
A meeting with the kings of the territory
“I was strolling through the woods when I suddenly felt the ground moving beneath my feet. As I looked up, there they were in the distance, standing right in front of me…two magnificent moose, the kings of the territory. I hid in the brush as best I could, and they approached me discreetly, giving me a chance to admire them in my own sweet time from afar, so as not to alter their natural behavior.” This is proof that a simple walk in the woods can lead to extraordinary encounters!
No signal? No problem!
Let's be honest: at the Auberge, your cell phone signal will sputter and fade. Actually, you won't have any signal at all, but you'll quickly see what a relief this is. When you find yourself at 615 metres above sea level, you'll quickly forget your daily concerns and soon realize how great it is to be without a phone. This is the very best way to disconnect, and you'll feel the benefits after only a few hours. From then on, you’ll seize every opportunity to get rid of your phone signal once again.
True outdoor junkies, our guides know the Auberge environment better than anyone, and they’ll cheerfully share their knowledge with you. Generous and available, they ensure your safety, offer activities adapted to your needs and capacities, and never fail to pass on their contagious enthusiasm. And your stay will make you true lovers of the Auberge, ready to pass on your love of this exceptional place to everyone you meet.
