Discover The region of Lanaudière Canada

Nicknamed the ?green region', the region of Lanaudière offers nature walks and cultural discovery. Located between the Saint Lawrence River, the Laurentian massif, the Maurice and the Laurentides, it forms part of the central areas of Quebec. There are agricultural towns and villages on the plain to the south, and some historical sites. The piedmont in the centre is appreciated for its numerous lakes and multiple natural attributes. The Laurentian Plateau in the north is covered by wild forests and attracts enthusiasts of brook trout fishing and open-air adventures. Wildlife enthusiasts, particularly ornithologists, will find an ideal observation ground here, particularly in the Rouge-Matawin and Mastigouche reserves, and part of the Mont-Tremblant Park. The lake Saint-Pierre archipelago, whose landscapes evoke the Louisiana bayous, has the largest heronry in Quebec. A part of this area - the Berthier islands - has been officially recognised by Unesco as a World Biosphere Reserve. Another distinctive feature of the region is the waterfalls and cascades. So you must not miss the Dorwin Falls, on the river Ouareau, in Rawdon, or those of the regional park of Chutes-Monte-à-Peine-et-des-Dalles. The Lanaudière also has a Native American reservation, about one hour's drive from Saint-Michel-des-Saints, where the Atikamekw (Manawan) live.
