Tucked away along the shores of the shimmering Lac Taureau, Saint-Michel-des-Saints beckons with its pristine outdoors. Dating back to 1863 when it was founded by a French parish priest, the picturesque village is a prime attraction for nature enthusiasts, in recent times. Explore the many water bodies of the region, with a host of aquatic activities on offer, ranging from canoeing and kayaking to fishing and swimming on fine sandy beaches. Hiking and biking trails through pine-laden forests give way to sledding and snowmobiling opportunities in the northern edges. Beyond the village, nature reserves like Mastigouche and Rouge-Matawin are home to a variety of northern wildlife. The Atikamekw village depicts the ancient culture of the Manawan First Nation. As dusk falls, it is time to snuggle up in the cozy interiors of your Saint-Michel-des-Saints accommodation, perhaps with a glass of wine before a crackling fire.
