29 Mar 10 original campsites in Quebec
Quebec is full of magnificent natural landscapes and inspiring national parks, which is why camping is a way of life for many. To energize these outdoor trips, here are 10 places to camp that are out of the ordinary!
1. In a floating yurt
In Baie-des-Chaleurs, more precisely in Carleton-sur-Mer, three Mongolian-inspired floating yurts allow you to sleep directly on the water. Accessible only by canoe, these Aux 4 Vents yurts can accommodate two adults and two children, in addition to being equipped with dry toilets and a wastewater collection system. Bring your food and your clothes and voila!
2. In a Hobbit house
Like the Hobbit houses in The Lord of the Rings, Entre Cîmes et Racines offers sleeping in “Le Troglo”, a house with a green roof, round windows, and interior fittings in stones and wood. Located in the heart of the Eastern Townships forest, the site allows four people to sleep underground, in the middle of a lush forest.
3. In a glass dome
The Aventures Cap Jaseux located in the Saguenay Fjord offers its campers to sleep in a glass dome completely finished and insulated. Being one-third transparent, the dome allows campers to admire the fjord and the starry sky.
4. In a hanging ball
Still, at Parc Aventures Cap Jaseux, it is possible to sleep in a futuristic sphere suspended in the trees, in order to experience a unique and original night. Can accommodate up to four people, the spheres are equipped with everything you need to cook up a good meal and have modular furnishings for more comfort.
5. In a bubble
Located in Anse-de-Roche on the edge of the Saguenay Fjord, Canope Lit offers its visitors to sleep in a completely transparent bubble. Perched 18 feet on stilts, the bubbles still retain their privacy. Towels and bedding are included and breakfast is delivered to the door each morning.
6. In a Treegloo
Domaine Au Diable Vert, near Mont Sutton, offers its campers to sleep, not only in a tree but also in an igloo perched on a tree! Perched on a platform, the Treegloo has two double beds with mattresses. A wood stove for cooking, a table and chairs for visitors.
7. In a zoo
In Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, the Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Félicien offers a complete package in which you can not only follow and contemplate caribou all day long but also sleep in a Prospector tent in a camp set up in the heart of the herd!
8. On the banks of the St. Lawrence
At Anse à la Cave, Les Bergeronnes, Mer et Monde Écotours offers to pitch your tent on the banks of the St. Lawrence. The sound of the waves and the breaths of the whales will be your music! Ready-to-camp sites are available for those who do not have their camping equipment.
9. On an island
By taking a boat from Rivière-du-Loup, it is possible to go to Île aux Lièvres and pitch your tent there in order to live a wild camping experience in peace. Seasoned campers and beginners alike can come and sleep on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River.
10. In a wooden teepee
Located in the heart of the Saint-Romain forest, in the northwest of the Eastern Townships. These four wood-clad (not canvas) tepees are insulated and heated with propane.
