A world of multicolored nets and 2,000 square meter tree houses: this is what the brand new “suspended” Uplå adventure park, located in Arbraska Mont-Saint-Grégoire park, promises. Designed for young and old “from three to 99 years old”, the course includes, among other things, seven trampolines linked to each other - including one with two floors -, three slides and various tunnels, in addition to nets, platforms and footbridges. All this, 20 meters above the ground, at the height of the foliage.
Do you know the Flotel concept? It is a small floating “hotel” made of recycled containers where you can rent a room directly on the water, with private bathroom and terrace.

One at Marina 360 in Saint-Paul-de-l'Île-aux-Noix, for a peaceful experience, and the other at Marina Saint-Tropez in Saint-Blaise-du-Richelieu, for a longer stay. animated. A refreshing getaway option.
