Holidays in Quebec: The most beautiful stay in nature

From four-star inns and resorts to rustic cabins and wild – or very civilized – campsites! -, there are a large number of overnight stays and stays in national parks and Sépaq territories. The common denominator: their unique location in the most beautiful natural setting in Quebec.

Do you want to explore Quebec? From one end of the province to the other, Sépaq offers a huge variety of experiences in 23 national parks and 13 animal reserves. While some like to recharge their batteries in a cozy hotel and enjoy the pleasures of a gastronomic table, others prefer to pitch their tent on the edge of a lake or river full of fish to live in the now – and cook their takeover a wood stove for dinner. To each its own corner of paradise and its own definition of luxury! No matter what type of experience is chosen, nature and its benefits are always there. The guides, animators and passionate staff, for their part, are eager to share their knowledge of the territories and ecosystems we need to protect. Throughout the Sépaq network, everything is done to help visitors experience unforgettable moments and become familiar with Québec’s natural heritage.

Experience Anticosti
Change of nature and wonder guaranteed
Luxury, the real thing, is to have the chance to explore a wild territory, admirably preserved and very little visited. Anchored in the middle of St. Lawrence Bay, Anticosti Island is a must take on your Bucket list, because it dazzles with its enormous white cliffs, its dizzying gorges, its rivers of emerald-colored water, where salmon come to spawn. Here it is the seals that bask in the sun in front of the tourists, and you come across more white-tailed deer than humans. The perfect place to enjoy one-on-one with nature! Offering accommodation such as all-comfort, the all-inclusive package at the Auberge Port-Meunier, which includes air transportation from Mont-Joli, meals, rental of electric bicycles and jet skis and a guided day at the Parc national d’Anticosti, Sépaq now does this paradise island once reserved for wealthy hunters and fishermen available. Note: Other types of packages, especially in cabins by the sea, with or without fishing, are also available.

Mountain excursions
To hook up completely
In the heart of the Gaspésie National Park, nestled at the foot of the spectacular Chic-Chocs Mountains, the Gîte du Mont-Albert offers all the comforts of a large city hotel in sublime surroundings, with a gourmet table as a bonus. A perfect place for relaxation and outdoor excursions. Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming pool, sauna: there is no shortage of activities. Do you want even more off the beaten track? Located 615 meters above sea level in the Matane Nature Reserve, the Auberge de montagne des Chic-Chocs is simply breathtaking. Only eighteen rooms, with attention to detail, attentive service, healthy and tasty meals, a spa where you can relax after a day of exploration on foot, by bike or in a kayak. But beware: no TV or mobile network! In short, a unique destination where there is a good chance to encounter one of the majestic moose that inhabit its forests.

All-inclusive holidays
To escape and have fun with the family
30 minutes from Quebec City, on the shores of the impressive Lac Saint-Joseph, Duchesnay Tourist Station has a special place for families. There is a new nautical center, a sandy beach with a floating dock where you can relax on sun loungers, as well as a volleyball court and hiking and biking trails. Not to mention an adventure course from the air in the trees! A team of animators offers a wealth of guided activities for young people or adults, such as geocaching or archery. You can stay overnight in one of the 48 ultra-comfortable rooms at the four-star inn or book one of the two cabins of 8 and 12 rooms, equipped with kitchen and living room, for a family party. Another option: the new Oxygène cabins, modern and warm, which can accommodate 4 to 16 people in complete peace of mind. Regardless of the type of housing, children and young people under the age of 18 stay for free in their parents’ room.

Cabins and camping
To recharge your batteries, away from city noise
Do you want a 100% natural experience? It is possible to escape to a rustic getaway or camp in the middle of nature to have sacred peace. You can also embark on the adventure with a canoe camping course, planned with the advice of experienced staff. But those who want a little more comfort have a choice. Thus, the camp-ready units with their large tents already set up with beds, heating, extra lighting, cooking equipment – and a nearby toilet block – offer an experience that appeals to families, couples and groups of friends. . Yurter is an unusual opportunity that is gaining more and more followers. Beautiful wooden huts with large bay windows have replaced some camps. In the Saint-Maurice Reserve, for example, the Horizon cottages, which appeared in 2020, place emphasis on solar energy while retaining the necessary wood-burning stove. More comfortable and more convenient, they take nothing away from the charm of a stay in this magnificent corner of the country.

Backed by the commitment of its team, Sépaq enhances the territories and public assets entrusted to it and ensures their sustainability for the benefit of its clientele, the regions of Quebec and future generations. It connects people with nature.
