Yurt

An up-to-date version of an ancient lifestyle emblem, the yurt is a popular option at Massif du Sud regional park. Combining charm and rusticity, this traditional nomad housing from Central Asia will charm you.

A round tent with an insulated floor, our yurt is equipped with windows to provide a lot of natural light and allow you to feel part of nature. Its round shape gives an intimate feeling to your evenings of stargazing through the skylight.

The Massif du Sud regional park’s yurt is furnished with a wood stove (wood included), four single bunk beds with mattresses, a kitchen counter, a gas stove with oven (propane tank included), cooking amenities for meal preparation and service, table and chairs. We provide drinking water for your needs* and there is also water access in front of the yurt, in the Milieu river. A dry toilet is located nearby and regular toilets and showers are located in the visitor center.

*We provide 10 liters of water per night, all delivered on the first day of your stay.  Those needing more water for their stay can refill their container at the visitor center.

Occupancy: The yurt is designed for 4 people and can accommodate a maximum of 6 people without any additional fees. In that case, you must bring sleeping pads for the extra occupants.

Location of the yurt

Located 3 km from the visitor center, where you must park your vehicle, the yurt is accessible only on foot. It is set by the Milieu river, on the D trail (see trail map). We provide a cart (summer) or a sled (winter) to carry your luggage from the parking lot to your accomodation.
