Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Visitors can walk in the footsteps of the First Nations tribe when staying at the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations. Located on a forested section of the First Nations reservation, Wendake, the themed hotel is just 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City and is a calm escape from city life with buildings resembling a longhouse surrounded by gardens, hiking trails and a river winding through the property. Guests of the hotel receive complimentary admission to the adjoining museum, where they can examine artifacts and take part in family activity programs.

All rooms have balconies overlooking the Akiawenrahk (St. Charles) River and are decorated with pelts, dream catchers and striking aboriginal woodwork. These traditional crafts are complemented by modern conveniences like free Wi-Fi, Keurig coffee makers, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and minifridges.

Guests can join snowshoe tours, fish in the river, canoe or ride in a helicopter. Bicycles are available for half or full-day rentals, and the concierge can arrange daytrips to visit nearby Huron landmarks. La Traite Restaurant’s menu specializes in Native American cuisine, including dishes such as roasted hare, grilled wapiti and smoked mackerel. At the Nation-Santé Spa, a waterfall, heated walkways, fire pit and relaxation yurt help guests find zen.
