Entre Cîmes et Racines

“Between root and crown,” these 14 unique eco-lodges in Quebec’s Eastern Townships promote sustainability with rustic ecotourism at its most fun. Featuring plenty of sleeping capacity, lodges vary in size — and shape: one is completely underground and another looks straight out of Lord of the Rings. Rejuvenate or hibernate year-round surrounded by 175 acres of forest, filled with trails and streams, plus deer, fox, rabbits and otters — a whole cast of characters for your forest fairy tale. Some cabins have hydro, and all feature either inside or outside dry toilets, with showers accessible nearby.

Location: 90 minutes southeast of Montreal.
Cost: From $125.
