10 Aug 3 original activities to do anytime
When summer comes to an end, we often run out of orignal ideas to keep ourselves busy. We’ve uncovered 3 activities that you may not have known existed.
Sleeping in a bubble
Have you heard of bubbles, transparent spheres that allow you to admire nature and the sky, regardless of the season or the weather?
Les pieds sur Terre, located in Saint-Calixte (less than one hour from Montreal), offers accommodation that is both unusual and ecological.
Their latest acquisition is a gigantic bubble measuring 25 feet in diameter which has all the comforts of a cottage, with a jacuzzi as a bonus!
You can also try a Native American tipi or a tiny-house cottage.
A hot air balloon ride over Quebec or Montreal
What about cocktails at 5,000 feet altitude? Or, why not pop “The question” while between heaven and earth?
Whatever your motivation, a hot air balloon flight over South Shore of Quebec, the St-Laurence river, Île d’Orléans, Laurentian chain or over Montérégie, South Shore of Montreal is anything but mundane.
Plus, you can enjoy this activity in summer, fall and winter as long as the weather allows. During the winter period, contrary to what one might think, thanks to the burner which gives off heat, it is 15 degrees warmer on board the hot air balloon compared to the temperature on the ground. Winter landscapes are really impressive. Note: The service takes a break from the end of October to December 20.
If you need a little magic and adrenaline, a hot air balloon ride is a must!
Discovering the First Nations’ world
A few minutes from Old Quebec is Wendake, an urban reserve of the Huron-Wendat Nation formerly known as Village-des-Hurons (“Huron Village”).
Wendake is an invitation to discover the First Nations’ world:
- Accommodation of all kinds

- Huron-Wendat Museum
- “Myths and legends” activity
- Rally to discover Wendake
- Workshops to make bracelets made from porcupine spikes or traditional necklaces with a Nation elder or workshop to make a talking stick with a Huron-Wendat
A range of packages are available depending on the season.
