A solar eclipse in the heart of Mont-Orford!

On Monday April 8, enjoy the privilege of experiencing the Total Solar Eclipse among adults at La Petite Auberge de Jouvence. The Eastern Townships is one of the only regions in Quebec to be entirely within the path of totality of the eclipse. Parc national du Mont-Orford is located on the line of centrality in the band of totality, giving you 3min18sec of darkness to observe the solar corona, prominences, planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) and bright stars! Come and enjoy the experience of a lifetime!
