Vacay.ca Ventures to Quebec’s Countryside
If winter is as spectacular in Mauricie and Lanaudiére as fall, then visitors are in for a getaway full of beauty and surprise. Vacay.ca Visuals Editor and Spa Columnist Julia Pelish ventured to the region in October and discovered a little-known region with vast appeal.
Pelish writes: “Lanaudiére-Mauricie, 130 kilometres (80 miles) northeast of Montreal, is swaggering with fall’s grandeur. During my visit, I covered a circuitous route on a delightful four-day road trip that is no more than two hours by car from either of the province’s two big cities. … I arrived in the small town of Saint-Paulin for an overnight stay at Auberge Le Baluchon. When we pulled into the country resort at 5:30 pm the sun’s early evening golden rays skimmed across the fields, saturating the colours with the deep intensity of a sunset. As far as first impressions go, this one was a stunner. Auberge Le Baluchon has a full service spa and restaurant as well as a range of activities including canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and cross country skiing.”
