Our secrets to fat bike and mountain bike expeditions in Alma Lac-St-Jean

It goes without saying that whatever path you choose, you are guaranteed to experience the nature of Lac-St-Jean in a unique manner. However, there is a small well-kept secret.

To have the best view of farmland and green spaces of our wonderful region, you must go to the top of the lookout on the Mont-Lac-Vert mountain. Nothing compares to the troubled silence caused by wind whistling through the leaves and witnessing the vastness of the territory stretching as far as the eye can see to give you the impression that you are completely elsewhere.
