In 1870, the settlers of Saint-Ambroise were attracted by the quality of the farming land. Even today, the potato fields seem to stretch out to the foothills of the Monts-Valin mountain range, and the blueberry and canola fields are proof that the land is still fertile and perfect for growing crops. Many lakes have attracted vacationers, and the municipality offers a multitude of services. Quad and snowmobile trails criss-cross the territory, and a bike trail allows cycling enthusiasts to ride through the town, which is equipped with recreational and cultural amenities, in addition to a dynamic commercial sector. The backcountry invites you to discover the hiking trail of the powerful Gagnon falls. In mid-August, the Festival de la chanson de Saint-Ambroise has entertained people of all ages for 25 years. Camping, live performances, camping services, and pump-out stations are available.
