Hébertville, the cradle of the Lac-Saint-Jean’s colonization, has preserved its historical heritage. As he traveled the shores of Belle-Rivière, the parish priest Hébert was certainly charmed by this village on the fur trade route. Audio guides for Hébertville’s heritage circuit are available at the welcome desk of Maison du curé (251, rue Turgeon).
The tourist industry started at the Mont Lac-Vert ski station where downhill skiing, snowboarding, and tube sliding are offered, in addition to hiking and ATV driving on marked trails in the fall. Winter is busy with snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snowshoeing. Summer brings cyclists who connect with the Véloroute des Bleuets on the Horst de Kénogami bicycle network. Visit the cheese factories, the church, and the Maison du curé Hébert. Find accommodations in bed and breakfasts, inns, and campgrounds on the lake offering kayak and bike rentals.
