If you’re passing through Cap-Chat, you’re sure to notice the vertical axis wind turbines (the highest in the world!) at Projet Éole. This attraction offers a unique experience of “retro-industrial wind immersion” in the middle of nature. Thanks to the experimental energy plant, information panels and a guide on site to answer any questions, you will learn everything there is to know about wind turbines. In addition, a panoramic terrace overlooks the Le Nordais wind farm as well as Cap-Chat, the sea and the Chic-Chocs mountains!
