Sugaring Off Season
AT SUCRERIE DE LA MONTAGNE
Available in February, March and April only
During the week or on weekends, Sucrerie de la Montagne lets you experience real Québec traditions. Here, the maple syrup is produced the old-fashioned way: the tree is tapped with a spout, the sap collected in a pail and transported to a traditional wood-fired evaporator, where it is transformed into maple syrup.
Maple taffy tasting on snow is available during the sugar season (February, March and April) and as an extra for groups out of season.
