Looking to treat that special someone to a memorable, one-of-a-kind getaway filled with adventure and relaxation? Auberge du Lac Taureau is just the spot! Nestled in the heart of the forest on the shores of the Taureau reservoir, this resort is a must for nature lovers and lovebirds alike!
The entire setting exudes romance, looking like something out of a movie. And there’s lots to do, too. Here are six different ways to enjoy Auberge du Lac Taureau as a couple, or with family or friends.
1. GOURMET DINNER
If fine dining is what you’re looking for, the inn’s restaurant will certainly satisfy you. The table d’hôte includes delectable meat and fish dishes. And here’s a tip for a romantic touch: ask for the table close to and facing the fireplace—it sets the perfect mood. The bistro-bar also features a delicious menu in an inviting setting. Top off your day in the outdoors with a boardgame around the fireplace. Settle into one of the comfortable armchairs and unwind for as long as you wish. It feels just like being at the cottage.
2. NATURE TRAILS AND SNOWSHOEING
Make your way to the activity centre to rent snowshoes or cross-country skis, then head out to explore the 20+ km of trails. The trails on the frozen lake offer a completely different view of the resort and allow you to go around the peninsula if you follow the Mistral trail.
Onsite you can also try your hand at a winter sport that’s gaining popularity: fat biking. Equipped with large tires, the bike lets you face the winter conditions head on and explore the forest faster than on foot. Skating is also available on the two frozen surfaces near the inn. You can even try ice fishing in the centre of one of them! Snowtubing is also available nearby. Just rent the equipment and off you go!
3. SNOWMOBILE PARADISE
When you arrive at the inn, you’ll quickly notice that it’s a true paradise for snowmobilers. Many riders stop in at the Auberge as part of their journey. There are numerous trails all around. Feel like giving snowmobiling a try? You can rent everything you need onsite, including warm clothing. Guides are also available to ensure your first ride is a memorable one! The snowmobile trails follow the shoreline and some cross over the lake. At the centre of the lake is where you’ll truly appreciate the vastness of the stunning snowscape.
4. DOGSLEDDING FUN
Definitely the best-loved activity available onsite! Let six friendly dogs take you on an exciting ride through the forest! Choko and Géant lead the pack, winding their way through the trees on an expedition of 8 or 25 km. When you see the dogs’ enthusiasm, you’ll know they’re having fun! You can even drive your own dog team and control their speed standing at the back on the skis of the sled. After the ride, the dogs are more than happy to get a few thank you cuddles. They’re very affectionate!
5. RELAXATION FOR TWO
Be sure to plan a visit to the resort’s health centre. Whether for a spa package, body care treatment or massage therapy, you’re sure to enjoy a well-deserved moment of peace and relaxation. The team is very professional and will cater to your every need to ensure your experience is a pleasant one.
6. OUTDOOR POOL OPEN YEAR-ROUND
Who said swimming outdoors could only be done in summer? At Auberge du Lac Taureau, children and adults alike can enjoy the heated outdoor pool all year long! There are also indoor and outdoor hot tubs, offering something for everyone. This extra touch makes all the difference for a relaxing getaway.
So many activities are available at Auberge du Lac Taureau, whether you prefer making the most of the outdoors, cocooning indoors or enjoying a combination of both.
