Time to unwind?

We invite you to join us and dive into the enormous sky of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, to be enchanted by its reflection in over 22,000 lakes and rivers. Here, you can lose yourself in stunning landscapes, your breath taken away by moments of beauty of a sunset or an aurora borealis. Here, with creativity as large as our open skies, we build pride as deep as our lakes. Here, the people are warm and passionate. Here, you are truly welcome.
