The Pontiac region has an area of 14,000 km2, and over 8,000 km2 of that area is the unorganized territory of Lac-Nilgaut. Although logging is the main economic activity in the area, it is mostly frequented and enjoyed by locals for recreational purposes. When it comes to pursuits such as bear or moose hunting or trout, pike, or walleye fishing, this vast green territory, which is full of wildlife, has a great deal to offer.
- 9 distinct areas, with 11 outfitting operations
- 54 % of the territory is undeveloped
- 1 dirt road, chemin du lac Jim, to get there from Mansfield-et-Pontefract
How we stand out
- Even though TNO Lac-Nilgaut has no permanent residents, there are cabins and hunting and fishing camps that allow vacationers to become fully immersed in nature, away from the hubbub of the city.
- “Nilgaut” is of Hindi origin and is the name of the largest short-horned Asian antelope in India. Naturally, there are none in the territory.
- Nilgaut Lake is at the centre of the unorganized territory. It is nearly 9 km in length.
- Aérodrome Nilgaut’s runway, when seasonally operational, allows vacationers to take flight and enjoy a moment of peace in the forest or by one of the many bodies of water in the unorganized territory.
