Sugar shacks & country-style dining

When they arrived in America, the French were introduced to the legendary maple syrup by the Native Americans who had long been aware of its existence. First tapped in a rudimentary fashion, then with an ax and finally a torch,  the maple tree has brought a festive atmosphere to the spring season with its sweet water, bringing families and friends together each year during sugaring off time. Discover one of the many sugar shacks located in the Laurentian region; joy is always on the menu, in the tradition of the good old days.
