Adventure and Zen Come Together

The Mégantic region is an unmatched playground for adventure enthusiasts. Home to the Canada Man/Woman Xtreme Triathlon–who would have thought North America’s most intense triathlon would take place in the same city that embraces the Zen attitude of the Cittaslow movement?

Dream and Dare

Gazing up at the sky, you’re sure to be moved by the magnificent spectacle of the stars. Here, not only are dreams dreamt, they’re put into action. After all, innovative initiatives always begin with a dream, such as the first micro-electric network in Quebec which can be found in Saint-Robert-Bellarmin.

Free Spirited and Committed

Escape and enjoy the outdoors in the Mégantic region. All it takes is a single visit to one of our two national parks to witness the sheer power and freedom of its vast open landscapes. Channeling this power will give you the motivation to push boundaries and get involved. The region offers a world of possibilities, as demonstrated by the creation of the first artisan entrepreneur accelerator, the Quartier artisan.
