Eastern Townships
Day 1

From Saint-Constant to Chambly

Exporail – The Canadian Railway Museum

Add to my planner

Kick off this route at full steam with a visit to Exporail! Features over 160 train cars and locomotives. Several installations are wheelchair accessible. Times have changed, but as universal accessibility wasn’t a high priority when some of the trains were built, not all are accessible.

Chambly Canal National Historic Site

Add to my planner

Stretching nearly 20 km along the Richelieu River, this canal connects Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu to Chambly. It’s the perfect spot for a walk along the river or a bite to eat in Old Saint-Jean.

Fort Chambly National Historic Site

Add to my planner

Visit this fantastic fort and learn about its history, which began as a wooden structure built by soldiers of the Carignan-Salières Regiment in 1665. Guided tours, exhibits and activities will make for a memorable adventure.

Day 2

From Granby to Upton

Visiting the animals at the Zoo de Granby

Add to my planner

The sprawling Zoo de Granby is home to more than 1,800 animals from 230 species and every continent! A visit feels like a safari around the world. On hot days, cool down at the Amazoo water park.

Théâtre de la Dame de Cœur

Add to my planner

Enjoy the magic of a giant puppet show at this theatre under the stars! Seat backrests are equipped with heated shoulder straps to keep you warm. A retractable room shelters audiences from the rain. They’ve thought of everything at this enchanting theatre!

Day 3

From Valcourt to Magog

Musée de l’ingéniosité J. Armand Bombardier

Add to my planner

At this interactive museum, you’ll walk in the shoes of a pilot, a publicity star, a builder and much more. A multimedia show tells the story of J. Armand Bombardier, the ingenious inventor of the snowmobile.

The Grand Cru

Add to my planner

To end this route on a high note, enjoy a supper cruise aboard the Grand Cru and marvel at the beauty of Lake Memphremagog. The sunset over the Appalachians is magical, and you may even catch sight of Memphre, the lake’s fabled monster.
