Sleeping in a Tee-pee in Canada

Have you ever dream of sleeping in a Tee-pee like an Indian? I did when I was a kid! A few years ago, I had this unique chance during my Holidays to Canada

Three hours and a half by car north of Montreal is the Lake Saint Paul. On the shore, you’ll find the village tee-pee La Bourgade where they offer an accommodation typical Sioux. The tee-pee has a diameter of 6 meters with a fire place in the middle to keep warm during the night. It's a return to the sources that bring you back to the rhythm of nature. Open all year long, it’s a perfect place to come to relax and enjoy the surroundings. You can use the canoe and go hiking on one of their ecological paths during the summer. During the winter, go dog sledging or snowshoeing.

Next door is the Spa Bains du Lac Marie Louise where you can enjoy a good massage. After, go to their wood-fired Finnish sauna, with an aromatic steam bath and a multi jet whirlpool bath overlooking the Lake. Take two hours to enjoy this beautiful wilderness recreation alone or with your partner. You can finish your weekend by a visit to the hammam and have a swim in the Lake after.
After two days away from the civilization and only surrounded by nature, you’ll feel relaxed and ready to take a fresh start.
