Lac Megantic

Cradled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, where summits can reach over 1,000 m high, the Lac Megantic region is marked by majestic scenery and bejeweled with dazzling lakes such as Aylmer, Megantic, Drolet, and du Portage. Settled by the Scottish and French Canadians, the area's roots can be seen in its fine architecture, the names of its charming villages, and its friendly citizens. The region's charms are not limited to any one season: cycle, hike, or go birding in autumn on one of many trails; snowmobile or ski in the Appalachians during winter; go antiquing in spring; and come summer, play a round of golf, picnic in one of the region's beautiful parks, or participate in the "Grand Tour du Lac Megantic"-a locally famous 52 km family cycling event around the lake.

Beaulac [A1] An enchanting village located on the shores of Lac Aylmer, Beaulac is a delightful place for fishing, hiking, windsurfing, or for enjoying a picnic at one of the rest areas along the lake. courcelles [A3] A village not to be missed by history buffs.

Lac-Drolet [C4] A picturesque resort center situated between Mont Sainte-Cecile and Mont Saint-Sebastien, Lac-Drolet draws water sport enthusiasts in the summer and snowmobilers in winter.
