Being a nature and outdoors enthusiast, I love Shawi! Only a few steps from my house, and without any traffic, I launch my kayak on the water or I put on my cross-country skis. It’s literally nature in the city… Good restaurants just around the corner, that’s real HAPPINESS!
Ranch Dupon

Ranch Dupont

Having grown up on the countryside surrounded by animals, I love to observe them at this ranch. Addax, bison, lemurs, wildebeest…there is something for everyone! The occupant of every paddock is well identified with a thorough description so we can learn more about it. It’s informative, relaxing and fun!

Café Bucolique

Returning from an outdoor outing, I love to stop in the rustic decor of this coffee shop for a nice hot chocolate or an Amaretto warm milk.

Parc national de la Mauricie - Lac du fou

La Mauricie National Park – Lac du fou

A little-known place in the park, this lake radiates tranquility. Its numerous junctions are surprising by their diversity: sometimes you paddle through tall grass and beaver lodges, sometimes you cross a narrow, almost secret, passage that leads to a large water plan. With a little luck, you’ll even see a moose.

Vallée Rocanigan

Vallée Rocanigan

There are many routes possible for winter hiking. The Canyon trail and the Lac trail are worth the detour for their calmness and beauty. With children, we slide, we skate, and we get warm near the outdoor firepit or in the yurt with a good hot chocolate.

Cité de l'énergie - trolley bus Jacinthe

Cité de l’énergie

Feeling like a mother daughter’s day? My mother and I took advantage of the summer to discover Shawi: Historic city tour aboard the tramway, visit of an active hydroelectric power station built in 1910, discovery of the old power stations, visit of Jean-Chrétien’s Museum and a nice picnic by the river. We went back the following year to complete our visit.
