Quote: When looking for places to go, we often focus on big cities: Montreal, New York, Paris, etc.. But , when we adventure ourselves to the outskirts of a city, we discover little treasures. The city of Magog, in Quebec's eastern townships is one of those hidden treasures..Let me introduce you.

Overview

Quote:
The vineyards and grape harvest festival, the festival of autumn colors, the Memphremagog lake, the tremendous quantity (and quality) of the different b & b's, the spas and the ski hill make this city and it's vincinity a great place to pass an entire holiday. If well being and relaxing are what you are looking for, this is THE place to look for it.Quick Tips: This is not the place to rush. Take your time. This city's beauty exposes itself to those who can wait. The people and everything about this place live at a totally different pace from the major cities. Trying to rush it will only spoil your experience, so make sure you have lot's of time on your hand.Best Way To Get Around: I ...Read More

Can you say intense!? Quebecers are well-known racing fans. Legends like Gilles Villeneuve and his son Jacques in F1, Bertand Godin, Alex Tagliani and Patrick Carpentier in Cart have captured the minds of young and old for years. But of all racing events, this is by far the most exiting! Almost stock cars racing on a tight circuit..on ICE! If your seeking an adrenaline rush (and sometimes a bit of a scare!), this is definitely an event for you!

This place has something for everyone. First, panorama! The Abbey is on the top of a hill, just in the side of the Memphrémagog lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Quebec. You can walk around a bit, but within boundaries because the monks don't talk and like to be left in peace. Also, the monks of St-Benoit-du-lac produce a world-renowned blue chees and other very fine cheeses! :) Another reason why people visit the abbey is for the different masses that they sing in latin. It's really impressive! They sing at 5am,7h30 am, 11am, 5pm, 7 and 9pm. Also, if you feel the need to rest or seek guidance, the monks will offer hospitality and consultions to those who wish.
