We don’t just go to the Megantic region out of curiosity but especially to enjoy its extraordinary setting. This is the perfect time to connect with nature along the lake’s shoreline and on every bend on the Summit Drive through the back country.
From Mount Megantic to Lake Megantic, a loop route on the Summit Drive takes you up hill and down dale, from earth to the stars, with breathtaking landscapes as an added bonus to create a wonderful road trip experience. Authentic villages will welcome you after a not-to-be-missed stop at the only Québec provincial park with an astronomical observatory open to the public.
The main entrance to the Mount Megantic National Park, this ultimate outdoor destination—which doubles as a scientific attraction that is unique in Québec in the heart of the first international dark sky reserve—has what it takes to attract both astronomy lovers and hikers. The informal science education events and activities as well as the many hiking trails have garnered the area a fine reputation.
