Val-d'Or is one of the cities in Abitibi-Témiscamingue that owes its beginnings to the gold rush. There you can become a prospector for one day. You can go down 91   meters under the ground in the galleries of the Lamaque mine, the deepest gold mine in Canada that is accessible to tourists. The parc Belvédère will surely please outdoor enthusiasts since it has an 18-meter-high tower.
Finally, nature lovers will be pleased in Val-d'Or since it is in this municipality that we can find the réserve faunique La Vérendrye, the second largest reserve owned by the SEPAQ (Société des Établissements Plein Air du Québec). Its vast territory and numerous lakes make it a paradise for fishermen and canoe-camping amateurs. This wildlife reserve also has many campgrounds and cottages that will please everyone.
Whether your are travelling for work or for fun, you won’t have any problem to find a hotel, motel or inn that will fit your needs.
