Immerse yourselves in nature with members of the Innu, Atikamekw and Anishnabe nations: a unique and special opportunity to discover and understand their traditional way of life, in Amishk aboriginal village on the shores of an exclusive lake in Montcalm regional park.
Your adventure will begin in the mid-afternoon with a warm welcome from your hosts and a cup of traditional herbal tea. The following activities will then be offered: medicinal plants workshop, canoeing on Amishk Lake, and a workshop on fur and trapping.

experience to do
Total immersion in nature, great welcome
(Translated by Google) Total immersion with Michel, Tati, Junior and the whole team. A serene and zen atmosphere. A moment out of time. We tested at night in the tepee, on the fir tree bed. Glad we did, but sharing the sleeping bag with the (even harmless) spiders was slightly difficult! We still have great memories. It is a great experience, especially with children. And then, the bracelet workshop, the discovery of beavers in their environment, the canoe trip, and the evening around the fire which begins with grilled corn, are just magical! Thank you to the cooks who also delighted us!
(Translated by Google) We wondered a bit what we were doing there. It's far from everything and we slept in a teepee on the ground. So difficult night for everyone and I wouldn't have had a second one like that. Trapper tents are much more comfortable.
Anyway, all that is quickly forgotten thanks to the kindness of our hosts. Everything is super well organized and the activities follow one another really well.
We shed a few tears when we left so much we appreciated these too short hours spent with a really endearing team.
