Nestled on the shores of Lac Saint-Jean, at the mouth of Rivière Métabetchouane, the town of Desbiens has natural, cultural, and historic attractions on the lakeshore and inland. The Parc de la caverne du Trou de la fée combines caving, dazzling experiences, and hiking, and Centre d’histoire et d’archéologie de la Métabetchouane (history and agricultural centre) takes us back to the origins of the first regional settlements. Moreover, La Route des Poteaux, an original concept, represents regional personalities along the main street. White sandy beaches invite cyclists to relax as they ride across Desbiens on the Véloroute des Bleuets. Winter is perfect for snowmobile enthusiasts and anglers fishing for burbot.
