HISTORICAL URBAN TOURS
Stroll down the streets of the two historical neighbourhoods that shaped Rouyn and Noranda. Discover the heritage, architecture and history through vintage photos and buildings that are still very much a part of today's Rouyn-Noranda.
Parc national d'Aiguebelle
Walk over 2.7 billion years, at the very place where the waters part. Through the beauty and diversity of the landscapes it protects, parc National d’Aiguebelle is the loyal custodian of a rich regional heritage inspired by both nature and culture alike. Several short and long distance hiking trails (51 km) allow one to discover its whole splendour. These lead to a suspended bridge across a fault-lake and to a huge spiral staircase erected alongside an impressive escarpment. They also take you to the summit of the Abijévis hills or to a fire watchtower.
Festival des Guitares du Monde
From October 1st to 9th, Rouyn-Noranda will become "Guitarville" for the 9 days of the festivities of this edition. A very special autumn edition that will feature very talented Canadian artists. The international component will be ensured by a show custom-made for the event that will be broadcast on a big screen, a unique opportunity to attend a concert by an international artist in the current context.The program is composed of about fifteen intimate indoor shows as well as a new virtual offer of nine performances also available in webcast
