This Huron aboriginal reserve is only about 20 minutes west of Québec City (you’ll know you’re there when you start seeing the bilingual Huron/French traffic signs). The major attraction here is the Onhoúa Chetek8e , a reconstructed Huron village (the ‘letter’ 8 in Huron is pronounced ‘oua’ like the ‘wh’ in ‘what’).

The guides are excellent (one is even a former land-claims negotiator) and take you round the village explaining Huron history, culture and daily life. It may be artificial, but visitors love this place and children go wild for the tipi, canoes and bow-and-arrow range. Several guides speak English but call ahead to make sure they aren’t already assigned to a tour group or on their day off when you arrive.
