A favourite spot for outdoor enthusiasts in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, Parc national d’Aiguebelle is the perfect place to admire the splendid symphony of colours that take turns in the spotlight around the region. Go on a hike to discover evocatively named geological phenomena such as giant’s kettles and pillow lava, cross a vertiginous fault from the top of a suspended walkway hanging 22 metres in the air and climb the fire lookout tower for a panoramic view of the surrounding area. With its landscapes shaped over billions of years, this park is a true natural jewel that promises an incredible visit full of colour.
