The Reservoir is a vast inner sea covering more than 320 km2 (125 sq miles). In winter, local snowmobile clubs maintain an ice bridge spanning over 8 km (5 miles). The most noticeable thing about the reservoir is without a doubt the huge crevices formed following the tidal range which goes up to 12 metres (40 feet) during the fall and winter. Going with a guide is strongly recommended.
The Upper Laurentians are a real paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy the tranquility of camping on your own island (in the Poisson Blanc Regional Park) or hiking up the Montagne du Diable, the thrill of paddling down rapids or travelling along Le P’tit Train du Nord Linear Park toward new horizons. Whatever your choice of activity, you will understand why the Upper Laurentians is your passport to nature…year-round.
