When I have a few days off and want to unwind, I head to Témiscamingue. On the shores of that vast lake, I almost feel like I’m at a seaside resort. As soon as I pass the Côte à Perreault, see that hill rise on the horizon, I slip into vacation mode. I stroll Ville-Marie, […]
You hear all kinds of things about Abitibi-Témiscamingue. There are mines, forests, bears, lakes teeming with fish and… uuh… black flies, top-notch snowmobile trails… But it gets cold – really cold – and it’s wwaaayy up north. It’s got a vibe, festivals that are an increasingly big draw. So, what if Abitibi-Témiscamingue was the new […]
It’s Saturday, March 7, 2015, the day after my birthday (so now you know), and it’s 10 a.m. I get up, and gather my boots, mitts, helmet and luggage bags to prepare for the longest snowmobile trek of my life.
Today, I’m on my way to Preissac to restore my reputation as a fisherman, which is (let’s be honest) awful in my immediate circle and completely non-existent in any other. In hockey terms, I could be described as a mucker. I work hard. I spend a lot of time on the ice trying to improve. […]
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always dreamed of owning a gleaming Harley Davidson. The concert of backfiring when several Harleys follow each other always set my imagination ablaze. I could see myself on my “hog”, hair blowing in the wind, revelling in that feeling of freedom that only a motorbike can give.

It is a grand contest organized by Tourisme Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Tourisme Baie-James in collaboration with the Supertrax International reference magazine. The latter was specifically in charge of the promotional aspect of the contest. […]

Why is it that a cold snap striking Abitibi-Témiscamingue makes news headlines, but when a snowstorm hits the entire province, it’s as if our region has never existed? It’s public knowledge: you need only to say “biting cold” and an image of Abitibi-Témiscamingue springs to mind. I often feel that people think that we survive […]
Very soon, our team will launch a new promotional campaign for the summer season. A campaign which includes television advertisements of course. This year, we have called upon a comedian from Ville-Marie, Martin Héroux (holds the role of Mr. Ding Dong in the popular program 1, 2, 3…Géant aired on Télé-Québec). It was a genuine […]
