Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, in the northern part of the region, is the largest territory in the Outaouais, perfect for lovers of outdoor activities. Cycling, camping, water sports—you’ll find them all here, and lots of outfitters besides, from family-oriented businesses to more rustic enter¬prises, some in remote areas accessible only by hydroplane. At Poisson-Blanc Regional Park, you can even rent your own island! Snowmobilers and ATV riders can explore over 600 km of marked trails. The town of Maniwaki is home to several interpretation centres where you can learn about forest fire prevention, white-tailed deer, and Aboriginal culture.
