The municipality of Ripon has many jewels in its crown when it comes to pleasing tourists.
A jaunt to the Ripon’s parc des Montagnes Noires de Ripon is a must for all outdoor sports enthusiasts. Its hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and mountain-biking trails as well as many opportunities to practise snow sliding sports will fulfill even the most active. In addition, the perspective from the 426-metre-high lookout platform, with a view of Mont Tremblant is breathtaking.
After visiting the forest, it’s time to tackle the Petite-Nation River, straight from Ripon’s roadside rest stop.
Why not plan a picnic in this relaxing and convenient setting or a comforting supper after a nature walk? Whatever the pretence, quality ingredients are available at the Coopérative Place du marché. Each Saturday in summer, local producers meet with visitors and citizens. In addition, the public market hosts a bevy of activities. Programming is described on its Facebook page. Seize the opportunity to tour the aromatic and medicinal plant garden adjacent to the market.
