The Larch resort

Our summer activities


Take a tour of Lac à la Peinture with friends aboard one of our canoes, pedal boats, kayaks or rowboats. The lake is quiet, there are practically no neighbors. It belongs to you. Enjoy it!

Canoe, kayak, pedal boat included limited time.
Boat and electric motor for rent

No petrol engines



From the shore or from a boat, fishing remains a “must” of a stay on the lake. Lac à la Peinture is ideal for recreational fishing, introducing children to fishing or relaxing at the end of the day with a fishing rod in hand. Our lake is home to bass and pike.

Bring your rods and fishing licenses! Ground glasses on sale at the reception. The lake is quiet, there are virtually no neighbors; it is yours. Enjoy it!

Bicycle on the “p’tit train du nord

The 232 km trail follows an old railroad track between Bois-des-Filion and Mont-Laurier: it is the longest linear park in Canada. Along the way, visit our lively towns and villages and discover heritage train stations, numerous restaurants and a host of cultural activities, art galleries and boutiques with unparalleled cachet.

Descent of the red river

Painted Lake is located near the Red River. This long river is known for its canoeing and kayaking and its many beaches. Ask the owner of Station des Mélèzes to drive you to Descente de la Rouge which is only a few minutes away. It will be possible to rent boats for a few hours or a whole day. We’ll pick you up when you’re done cruising the Red River at your own pace.



Take advantage of the good weather for an aquatic activity with our ATVs with friends or family.
