LA MAURICIE NA­TIONAL PARK

The land­scape of La Mauricie

Na­tional Park north of Shaw­ini­gan is a quilt of forests, rock and lakes typ­i­cal of the rugged Cana­dian Shield. It is an out­door lover’s dream: wilder­ness lakes and streams for kayak­ing and ca­noe camp­ing; trails for hik­ing and moun­tain biking in sum­mer and snow­shoe­ing in win­ter; and nat­u­ral pools for a quick dip to cool off. The Parks Canada fam­i­lyfriendly oTENTiks (can­vas roof and walls on a wooden frame and floor) sleep six and are equipped with so­lar lights, bar­be­cue, firepit, lantern and wood stove. Some are open year round (www.parkscanada.gc.ca/ mauricie).
