The Rapide-Sept Lodge won a prize at the Tourism Grand Prizes Regional Gala
18 April 2012
Last March 23, in Rouyn-Noranda, the Rapide-Sept Lodge was awarded the Accommodation prize, Lodge category, within the framework of the Quebec 2012 Tourism Grand Prizes Regional Gala.
The lodge distinguished itself with its innovative characteristic and integration of the sustainable development concept throughout its services. This ideology is found namely in the purchase of non-polluting motors for its boats, as well as the method involved for the construction of its new cottages in 2010 and 2011. The latter were indeed built according to the traditional Scandinavian method which involves the manual stripping of all the logs used. Moreover, no nails or pegs were employed to hold the structures in place. The cottages offer an outstanding lodging quality and, all the while, maintain the charm and simplicity of a fishing camp in harmony with its surrounding nature.
