Being Active and Relaxing Outdoors

When summer comes to the Saint-Sauveur Valley, the weather and the landscapes are so gorgeous that there’s no resisting the urge to head outdoors. Whether you’re a golfer, hiker, cyclist or water sports enthusiast, nature beckons you to enjoy.


Golfers will watch their balls take flight into breathtaking mountain scenery. Hikers will walk for hours along trails developed for beginners and experts. And every time, the beauty of the expansive panorama in the open air will further enrich the experience.

Cyclists will ride along trails that stretch kilometre after kilometre, bringing a picnic lunch and contemplating the natural beauty. Whereas those who prefer to stay in one place can make the most of recreational facilities and even enjoy table tennis under the sun!

Lovers of activities in and on the water will also find plenty to enjoy. Water slides, pedal boats, kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming are all on the menu. For those eager to be on the move and getting exercise, canopying in the forest will provide their invigorating pleasure.

The three local wellness centres will await such energetic visitors with open arms. And others too! Relaxing at the spa, or with a massage, a dip in the river or under the forest canopy in the open air are all moments of respite to be prized in the Valley.
