A charming town with so much personality
Rawdon is well-known for its beauty. Just one hour from Montreal, its charming setting and easy access have been attracting visitors from all over for a long time. The area is an ethnic mosaic that adds so much local colour. In summer, the beach is a popular spot, with all you need for a fun time on the water.
While the adventurous try their hand at a treetop circuit, hikers can explore trails of Chutes Dorwin Park. Families can have a fun time visiting the bison farm or picnicking under the tall pine trees next to the stunning 60-metre high waterfall. Even more accessible is Parc des Cascades—the ideal place to relax after a game of golf or to enjoy a horseback ride. Spending the night in a cottage or a yurt is a great way to end this day of activities or relaxation.
