Spring | Summer

With the arrival of spring comes the awakening of nature. To fully benefit from the awakening of Mother Earth, we offer additional activities that feature the enchanting setting that surrounds the Huron-Wendat Museum and the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations. Come and experience or reexperience our summer activities just minutes from Québec City where nature and discovery are in the spotlight!

Knowledge Trail

Walking on the trail while listening to the gentle sounds of the river: a perfect combination! The Knowledge Trail will take you through cultivated gardens, a woodland, and a forest. Through these three environments, interpretive panels explain the Huron-Wendat relationship with nature.

Horticultural garden

Observing and understanding how nature works is what has made it possible to develop the so-called “three sisters” agricultural technique. Essential to the survival of the Huron-Wendat, corn, squash, and beans made up about 80% of their diet at the start of the 17th century. This technique is called the “three sisters” because these plants complement each other and help each other grow.

We offer you a glimpse of it in our gardens inspired by this ancient technique!

Hebertism mini-games

After so many discoveries on different subjects comes the urge to move! At the end of the Knowledge Trail, there are a few hebertism mini-games available to hotel, restaurant, and museum toddler guests. Installed in the wooded area next to the indoor swimming pool of the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations, these games will surely delight toddlers.
