Le Baluchon Eco Resort is a unique hotel that offers enjoyment and beauty while being respectful of the environment and land, heritage and history. It is composed of 1000 acres of nature, including 200 acres of agricultural land. It also has 40 km of forest trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and mountain biking. In the heart of this site is a meadow and a pasture where horses graze freely and where is found a fieldstone windmill and a wooden chapel. At this meadow's end is the beautiful Riviere du Loup, meandering for kilometres, where one can swim, kayak or canoe; or simply stop alongside to sit and enjoy the scenery.
Courtyards on the riverbanks are the ideal location to enjoy a relaxing or therapeutic massage while listening to the sound of the gently flowing water.
40 km of trails in the forest and along the river are perfect for hiking and mountain biking. This site includes some forestry groups such as pine forest and a maple stand in which there is a sugar house. You can see a beaver dam, a duck pond and several buildings, such as the chapel, the windmill and the Ecurie du Roy stable.
