Every room in this relaxing, earthy resort features a private balcony that overlooks the Akiawenrahk River. The hotel is situated on a forested section of the First Nations reservation called Wendake, just 15 minutes from Québec City by car. Once here, you’ll find everything you need to decompress. The “multisensory” Nation-Santé Spa has a waterfall, heated walkways, a fire pit, and a time-out yurt for quiet relaxation (C$32 per person; non-guests can come for the day). The high-end La Traite restaurant specializes in First Nations–inspired cuisine such as red deer, dried seal, or smoked mackerel. A three-course table d’hôte is priced at C$42 per person; more elaborate and costlier tasting menus are also available. Paintings and sculpture by First Nations artists are featured throughout the hotel and an on-site museum celebrates Huron-Wendat culture. An afternoon could be spent poking around the handful of shops and galleries in Wendake, hiking the adjacent trails, or admiring the nearby Kabir Kouba waterfall.
