Welcome to Parc National du Mont Orford
There's probably a better summer day than one spent in golden sunshine amid lush green foothills, cool blue lakes and spectacular viewpoints that take in all of the above, but we haven't found it yet. In the meantime, we'll happily show allegiance to Parc National du Mont Orford, home to snapping turtles, day-tripping families, countless bird species, and hiking, kayaking and canoeing opportunities. It's fairly compact, and often gets busy given its proximity to Magog.
Just outside the park boundaries, the Orford Arts Centre hosts the Orford Festival, a prestigious series of 40 to 50 classical concerts, from late June to mid-August.
