Geography

Part of a 120 km massif with a maximum altitude of 980 meters, Poulin de Courval sits at 600 meters above sea level and covers an exclusive pristine area of128 Km².

Due 60 km. northeast of Chicoutimi the Poulin de Courval Lake covers an area of 28 Km². Its northern outlet gives birth to the 5 km. Poulin River which in turn empties into the Sables River to finally end its course in the Pipmuacan reservoir.

The Poulin de Courval Lake is unique in the province of Quebec and has the distinction of being the world’s largest lake with a population of indigenous, allopatric (free of any another competitive species) speckled trout.

The outfitting territory is also home to one of Quebec’s most important heron colony. The flight of these tall birds is nothing short of impressive.

A caribou population roams free in a forest made up mostly of black spruce and white birch. The area is also home to some rabbits, partridges, foxes, moose and bears.
