Can we manage to be at two places at once? I think it’s very possible thanks to the friendly Pierre-Yves, the owner of the charming Gîte aux Orchidées. He will make you travel to Switzerland, his country of origin, and he knows everything relevent to know about Shawinigan. He will therefore be able to advise you on its attractions, activities and good restaurants. So, bam! You get to travel to Shawinigan and Switzerland in the same trip.
Before enjoying a good deal of outdoors activities in the La Mauricie National Park, you’ll need a good breakfast full of vitamins and energy, courtesy of our dear Pierre-Yves. Hiking, kayaking, swimming, biking, all a few minutes away from the cottage. Psst! You can also enjoy a nice horse ride at the Équi-AMI Stables!
When you book your stay, we suggest you chose their “Swiss Experience” package, where you will have the chance to taste a cheesefondue with the original cheese with holes. Yummy! Then, after a hearty meal, you’ll be able to enjoy a super relaxing evening with a game of pool, a dip in the hot tub and a nice and warm campfire.
Special mention to the bright solarium and the locked garage, ideal to store your motorcycle, bike or snowmobile in complete safety.
