Day 1

Start your journey with an unusual stroll, like nowhere else, with the Beaulac-Garthby Railbike . What is a vélorail? It is a platform attached to two bicycles, forming a small vehicle that moves on the railway thanks to the muscular strength of the users. This is a really original way to take a walk in the countryside as a couple or family!

For supper, treat yourself to a burger made of meat ... buffalo! This unusual meal can be ordered at Auberge St-Fortunat Auberge St-Fortunat .

For an unusual night in the Thetford area, stay in one of the St. Julien Chalets​​ . One of them is a saloon, the other a locomotive, a mill, a NASA shelter or Daniel Boone's cabin!

Day 2

Start your day by admiring the unique view of Old Black Lake Lookout, on the edge of the British-Canadian (BC) mine closed in 1997. This site highlights a unique phenomenon in the area: the extraordinary turquoise color water that fills the old mining wells.

Then go to an old frame, restored in an observation tower gives a magnificent view of the city of Thetford. It's not every day that we have the chance to visit a former mine site, such as theHistoric Center of the King Mine !

Before leaving the city center, you must visit the  Setlakwe  store, which has kept a very unusual payment method from these first years. Take the opportunity to buy a fashion accessory to remember your visit to the region!

End your unusual stay by visiting, Versant-la-Noël , a building with unique architecture. There are seven steeples from as many different religious denominations! The visit will help you understand and appreciate the why, the history and the details of all the objects contained in this magnificent building with 7 bell towers.
