Albanel

Between Lac-Saint-Jean’s northern plains and the waterways of Rivière Mistassini, Albanel shares the location with the starting point for the Au fil des rivières 45 km bike path that stretches to Girardville through forests and blueberry fields, starting at the Véloroute des Bleuets. The fabulous ninth falls of the Mistassini River can be reached from the path or la Route du Premier Rang. In the heart of the village, admire the century-old Sainte-Lucie church and La maison du pionnier Antoine Laprise, built in 1890 (226, rue Principale); they are of considerable architectural and historical interest.  The flamboyant sunsets bathe the pastoral lands. The campground is located at the village centre and offers rental cabins year-round. Join us the Festival de la Gourgane that takes place in July. A heated pool, tennis, and minigolf are available.
