Village du bûcheron Summer 2020 in Shawi - Learn


Guided tours of Lumberjack Village include shows where tales and songs transport visitors to the historical universe of Québec lumberjacks. The guides, both musicians and storytellers, take you on a journey through the history of the region. A visit to the Village du bûcheron is a fun and educational way to discover how the forest industry shaped the Mauricie and all of Québec.
We invite you to discover the great epic of the lumberjacks who built the country with their arms and their hands under extreme living conditions. Through reconstructions of typical 19th century camps, the village exhibits original tools and materials as witnesses of another era.
Check our website for tour times and information about the Village du bûcheron and Saint-Maurice River cruise on the Windigo package deal.
There is now a new restaurant on site called La Cookerie. It is possible to eat outside on a terrace. There is a bistro-style menu and a blackboard menu both offering local and seasonal products. The bar offers a variety of beers, wines and alcohols from Quebec producers. The atmosphere is warm and friendly!
