The sea of mountains around the lodge includes two peaks that stretch more than 1,000 metres into the sky: Mount Matawees (1,073 m) and Mount Collins (1,036 m). The Chic-Chocs are known for the diversity of their plant and animal life; there is a good chance you will see moose, caribou or white-tailed deer during your mountain excursions. Moose are particularly plentiful, with 4.8 animals per km2.
You are free to choose how you wish to experience this spectacular mountain environment. Take a hike in the mountains, pay a visit to the 50-metre-high Chute Hélène waterfall with its basin of crystal-clear water, do some fishing, or simply enjoy the peace and tranquility while contemplating your magnificent surroundings. Be sure to relax in the outdoor spa during your stay.
