Do you know the Uapishka Mountains, also called the Groulx Mountains? With more than thirty peaks over 1,000 meters wide spread over 5,000 square kilometres, it is now possible to go on a guided hiking adventure in the heart of the boreal forest in a safe way thanks to Aventure Uapishka.

Located on the water’s edge in Portneuf-sur-Mer, O’Rivs Pub promises to fill your stomach with its ‘fisherman’s pub’ concept. We go there specifically to sample their famous Smashburger, three meatballs with elk and ground beef, cheddar cheese, and fried onions, all on a brioche bun. Guaranteed success, whatever your appetite. The menu also features poutine, fish and chips, Cote Nord-flavored rolls and appetizers for sharing.
