Visit Parc régional de la Rivière-du-Nord in the Laurentians region of Quebec, and you’ll be treated to a rich dose of natural and cultural heritage. Nature enthusiasts frequent this area to engage in activities such as biking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, skiing and snow shoeing. The Rivière-du-Nord is a 137-kilometre-long river that flows into the Ottawa River. And at this time of the year, visitors are treated to breathtaking fall colours in addition to views of the river.
