Celebrate sugaring off with your family

When winter comes to a close, spring is just around the corner. It is time to take advantage of the delightful sugaring-off season. The warmer weather causes the maple trees  to produce their golden liquid, so a family visit to the authentic sugar shack at Domaine à Liguori in the heart of the village of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François is a must.

In addition to enjoying a traditional meal at the cabin, you can experience the sugaring-off adventure as you walk the trails with your family. Perfect for young children, the trail is located behind the main building. Although walking in boots is fine, snowshoes are a plus if you visit the cabin at the start of the season or just after a snowfall. The whole family will enjoy learning from the informative posters that answer everyone’s questions while discovering the hidden treasures of yesteryear.

Your day ticket also includes access to the tube sliding area. A slope specially designed for children will make this visit even more memorable. Surprise animations, traditional music shows, heat zones and stations combine to make this a unique place everyone loves to visit once spring arrives.

After savouring the famous taffy on snow, visit the Café du Domaine boutique and stock up on delicacies to take home. If it is impossible to travel to Petite-Rivière-Saint-François this year, gourmet boxes with appetizers, side dishes, meals and desserts are available.

Happy sugaring off!
