Wild blueberry capital of the world, Dolbeau-Mistassini is on Lac Saint-Jean, on land criss-crossed by impetuous rivers at the edge of the forest estate. Vauvert-sur-le-Lac-Saint‑Jean is the perfect example of picturesque countryside with seven kilometres of beach, nautical activities, a four-star campground, rustic cottages, and a service centre with resto-bar, terrace, and live entertainment. In the winter, the site becomes a snowmobile relay (no. 367) and an ideal place to ice-fish, snowshoe, and cross-country ski. The Véloroute des Bleuets bike route passes through town via a roadside connection heading to Vauvert. Discover a beautiful beach from the footbridge over Rivière Mistassini. In town, find accommodations at Camping des Chutes along Rivière Mistassibi, offering a great view of the Des Pères falls’ turbulent waters.
Dolbeau-Mistassini celebrates the region’s emblematic fruit during its annual blueberry festival. Pick your own at the blueberry farm and taste mouth-watering chocolate-covered blueberries at the Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes (Trappist monks chocolate shop). [ad. p. 29]
