Normandin

At the heart of the immense agricultural plain, north of Lac Saint-Jean, Normandin offers visitors dazzling natural surroundings, local attractions, and products along its ecotourism circuit, which clearly demonstrates the entrepreneurial nature of its population. 

Site touristique Chute à l’Ours offers a campground, cabins, and hiking trails and is known for its close proximity to the spectacular Rivière Ashuapmushuan. Visit the public forest that’s dedicated to community use and recreational tourism or admire the rural landscapes as you cycle along the Véloroute des Bleuets. 

Places to see: the historic centennial park located in the downtown core, l’Économusée du Pelletier-Bottier et de la Taxidermie (cobbler and taxidermy traditional workshop), La Bergerie du Nord (soap works, lamb products) and Fromagerie La Normandinoise (cheese factory).

In June, Normandin honours the memory of one of her sons, the singer Dédé Fortin, during Festival Dédé Fortin in 2018.
