The forest of the Gorge de Coaticook is a magical place where mystical beings show up when night falls. Some of them live there since the dawn of time.
We invite you to explore these creatures by walking along this illuminated trail. Let yourself be swept away by the mysteries of FORESTA LUMINA.
It is hard to believe, but his giant creature was once a man. Feared since the dawn of time, he is said to be a bloodthirsty monster with a heart of ice and an insatiable appetite.
He’s been seen many times in the forest of the gorge. Appearing as a distinguished gentleman, he seduces his victims with tempting proposals that always end in the fiery pits of hell.
This Portal separates the everyday world from the realm of the imagination. Only those bold enough to venture through will discover the mysteries of the legendary Coaticook gorge.
Through flood and fire, the storm’s power has shaped the fate of Coaticook’s peoples across the ages. The ancients feared what might happen if ever it fell under the control of dark forces.
Playful and mischievous, the fairies of the forest can make your wishes come true. But be warned! Don’t cross these little balls of light, or they will whirl you into a fiery nightmare.
This benevolent force keeps watch over the gorge. Legends say that it comes to life at night, playing tricks on unwary humans.
The ancient peoples called on this mysterious being to protect them. Rarely seen by humans, it maintains harmony between the creatures and elements of the gorge.
