The region will surprise you with its vast choice of activities to suit all tastes and budgets.

Take a trip to the “Victo” region this fall! Go for the biggest gourmet road trip in Quebec during La Balade Gourmande, or for a visit to bright red fields during Canneberge en fête. See the largest snow goose migration in Eastern Canada or take pictures of colourful trees at the top of the highest mountain in Centre-du-Québec at Gleason en couleurs. Conveniently located less than 90 minutes from Montreal, Québec City and Sherbrooke, Victoriaville and its region are at the heart of the action. As the saying goes, happiness is just around the corner! (Website available in French only)
