Looking for a great healthy activity to do...you must visit Ste-Agathe simply because its a beautiful village. At the beginning of Autumn we went on a road trip in the Laurentians and we ended up at Lac Des Sables, one of the gorgeous big lakes up North. This place is a must for anyone who needs fresh air and a... More

& yes we did it! Superb panoramic Fall colour scheme all round the lake, this was first quarter of October but of course depending on weather, as early cold & rain could make a difference to the Fall. Such lovely trip on the lake & we were able to see many beautiful (perhaps summer) houses of the famous, dating back... More

I've been living in the Laurentians all my life but never went on Croisière Alouette's 50 minutes boat ride on Lac des Sables. I finally did my mother-in-law and niece and we all enjoyed it. It's not a thrill ride for sure but I enjoyed the slow and relaxing vibe of the boat. The crew gives interesting facts about the... More

A lovely, affordable experience - it was easy to enjoy the shoreline from the Alouette (boat). The guide was informative, the water was calm, the sun was out, and the homes (some with historic significance) were memorable. Worth the trip!

Beautiful scenery and calm ride. This is by far the cheapest way to travel on the water with all the nice houses on the shores of this magnificent lake... Thank-you for the captain,the guide who was very funny for this enjoyable cruise.

Their website indicated that they are open till end of October. I went there in middle of October with my family waited more than one hour and didn't see any boat. The office was closed with nothing specified on it. I tried to call them but nobody answered.

We recently enjoyed this tour on Lac de Sables. The autumn colours were FABULOUS and it was great to get up close and be able to photograph the beautiful scenery. The Sunday afternoon we visited both boats were out on the water as the weather was so good. The only watchout was that the commentary was completely in French, although... More

A nice activity with family or in couple, is a short cruise which it takes about 50 mins, and you see the nice view, the nice houses that surround the area, the mountains, the lake, the fresh air.. Very nice scenario for those who loves pictures. The price is good. I recommend it
