Discovery and adventure [1]

Located in Québec’s westernmost reaches, Abitibi-Témiscamingue is a region characterized by immense tracts of lands, largely untouched, where the forest and a profusion of lakes predominate. Historically the trading grounds between the European fur traders and the Algonquin, only in the early 20th century did this vast area so rich in mineral resources welcome its first pioneers and draw prospectors in search of gold. Proud of a history marked by pluck and determination, Abitibi-Témiscamingue offers visitors an experience full of surprises where contact with nature takes top priority.
