Creative and outdoor fun!

Let your creative side out to play and take part in the Make-and-Take workshops at Ateliers du funambule. On the menu: painting masks, making necklaces, fabric painting and decorative collages. In the afternoon, make the most of the great outdoors; why not hire a bike or roller skates from Intersport and head out on the 4-km-long multipurpose trail? The trail runs along the Baie des Chaleurs so you can take in the fantastic view while stretching your legs. A must in Bonaventure!

Lots to choose from for your final day

There’s a lot to choose from for your final day: visit the Banc-de-Pêche-de-Paspébiac and see how the fishing trade developed on the east coast. Or visit the Ferme Bourdages Tradition; a farm specialized in growing strawberries and producing strawberry wine… If you’re there at the right time of year, you can pick-your-own strawberries! You could also visit the Ferme BOS G, which is the only farm in Canada that specifically raises yak.
