Ride in the forest by quad or by snowmobile; you’ll find a range of services offered. Welcome in Wemotaci, a native community whose name means “the mountain where we observe". Located at about 1.5 hours from downtown La Tuque, Wemotaci is the nearest Amerindian community. The adventurers and outdoor lovers will find restore and supply points. On this exceptional site, a traditional pow-pow takes place every year in September, for which the community is famous.

They also rely on forest industry.
