As soon as they step foot in century-old Péribonka village, visitors are charmed by views of the lake, a big attraction for sea-kayaking and pleasure-boating enthusiasts. Other attractions include references in the novel Maria Chapdelaine and the Musée Louis-Hémon. Agriculture is omnipresent, with many rolling potato fields. The swim race across the lake (Traversée internationale du lac Saint-Jean) is a can’t miss event during the À l’eau Péribonka festival held from July 28 to 30, 2017. The Véloroute des Bleuets bike route follows the river to the ferry. Hop aboard for a ride to Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon. Have a bite to eat at Bistr’eau Pub Péribonka before shopping for souvenirs at the art gallery. The recently renovated campground welcomes the whole family with cottages, ready-to-camp accommodations, yurts, playgrounds, water games, a pool, and mini-putt. Auberge Île du Repos offers a variety of shows in a brand new intimate setting. [ad. pp. 33, 197, 207]
