Play outside

Nature is one of the key parts of a stay in Sherbrooke, a character trait inherent to a city that, in addition to being the heart of the Eastern Townships, is full of outdoor activities whatever the season. Sherbrooke’s outdoor activities, the city’s harmony with nature, will inspire your many adventures while staying here. Admire the landscape, take in the moment and leave with a feeling of wellbeing.

What to see on the
Lac-des-Nations Boardwalk

The Lac-des-Nations is where locals come to stretch their legs, admire the landscape (and especially the sunset!). During your outing around the lake, you can stop at the Sherbrooke Marché de la Gare to taste different products from the region. Psssst: the snow on the path is fully removed during winter!

Urban Mountain

Mont-Bellevue, a natural reserve in Sherbrooke, watches over the city with its illuminated cross. Its 30km of paths will take you through many different ecosystems! . Easy to access, Mont-Bellevue is a great way to add a bit of physical activity to your day any time of the year: on foot, by fatbike or on skis.
