You Can See The Northern Lights In Quebec This Summer At These Rustic "Eco-Lodges"

It may seem like worlds away, especially if you look outside now, but you might want to start your bucket list planning for summer 2019 now before every excursion is booked!

TL;DR Matagami Ecolodges offers rustic accomodations perfectly made for witnessing the Northern Lights without leaving the province. Choose from a number of summer activities and excursions about 8 hours from Montreal.

If you were hoping to plan a bit of a roadtrip out of the city this year, we've found just the place for you. As long as you're into the enchanting outdoors, warm summer nights, and rustic accomodations, you'll never want to leave this hidden Quebec gem.

This summer, you're definitely going to want to visit Matagami Ecolodges for your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the Northern Lights in person and enjoy the stunning landscapes of northern Quebec.

Located in Baie-James, Quebec, the drive does clock in as a bit long (about 8 hours) but what adventure doesn't involve a bit of driving? Plus, you'd never be able to find such a secret oasis close to home.

There are also a few accomodations to choose from, so no matter what type of home base you'd want for your stay, you're covered. Your options include sleeping in a log cabin, a rustic yurt, or luxury tent on site. Each living space will allow you to enjoy the incredible Northern Lights that cover the sky each evening and explore the surrounding trails by day.

As if it wasn't enough, Matagami Ecolodges offers tons of activities perfect for the summer. Excursions include a Nordic Bath just outside of your accomodation, collecting authentic Quebec maple syrup, hikes through the scenic paths, and romantic boat rides on the calm Matagami lake.
