The Nemiskau outfitter : one of the most luxurious one in Quebec
In the language of the first inhabitants of Québec, Némiskau means “where fish are abundant”. It is no wonder, then, that a lodge has been created here in the middle of a vast forest area in Mauricie. The Némiskau outfitting is one of the newer ones in Québec and probably one of the most luxurious too. This is evident in the several Jacuzzis, both outdoor and indoor, which allow visitors to bask in warm water whilst admiring views of the lakes! Historically, outfitters are simply rustic shelters for fishermen and hunters. The fact that it has a spa is exceptional and clearly demonstrates the comfortable character of Némiskau. This outfitter is also famous for its tasty and inventive cuisine. In short, a stay here is above all a relaxing time for connoisseurs. There are many pleasant foot paths that lead through the vast territory of Némiskau. And one can also, as in all outfitters, rent a small boat to explore one of the area’s 11 lakes. As the man running the place, Stephane Tremblay will happily give you a demonstration of the traps that he uses to trap bears, beavers and foxes. Because at Némiskau, it is not fish that abounds…this area is very rich in wildlife. Which is not surprising, considering you’re in the middle of nowhere, and the first village is over an hour away. Peace and quiet totally guaranteed!
