The ‘Poste de traite Metabetchouan’ (trading post) located in Desbiens is an interpretation centre. It welcomes you to re-live the shock between Amerindian and European cultures through its exhibits, activities, events, historical journey, archeological excavation simulations and other hands-on workshops.

Through an interactive and multi-sensory approach, be prepared to be charmed by this several thousand-year-old site where most First Nations from North America North East met every summer to share and exchange. It is the same location where Father Jean De Quen discovered the lake Saint-Jean in 1647. It gives you access to the Lake and to the bicycle route (véloroute des bleuets) on top of offering you a panoramic and majestic view of the Lake.

The entire family is invited to come and visit, where it all started!

The site is opened from June 25th to September 4th.

N.B.: if you arrive after our opening hours (10 am to 5 pm), you may park your RV and we will meet you with pleasure the following morning. Have a nice stopover!

Note on parking: RVs can use the asphalted second visitors parking lot. It is located close to route 169 and the railroad track.
