Vocation of the lodge:
The Auberge offers lodging in the Matapedia Valley
The Auberge has two vocations, that is to say it is both an Auberge/Gite that welcomes people passing through, tourists and workers.
It is also an Lodge/Outfitter that welcomes hunting, fishing and outdoor enthusiasts.
The term outfitter, derived from "pourvoirie" (outfitter), designates both the business and the territory it occupies, with or without exclusive rights. As the name indicates, the outfitter provides, in addition to lodging, one or more of the following services: transportation, food, equipment, guide, etc.
We are open and accessible to all fishermen, so it is not mandatory to hire the services of a guide. You can stay there with the accommodation plan that suits you best....according to your needs.
