Montreal & Mauricie

QC_Mauricie_Parc Mauricie


Combine the best of both worlds : you’ll dive into Canadian history in Old Montreal, practice your French in trendy neighborhoods and outdoor markets, and dance your heart out on the city’s endless festival circuit. You’ll also disconnect with Mother Nature as you learn survival skills, find your inner Lumberjack and enjoy the beauty of the Mauricie’s territories.
