Our rich history and the uncompromising natural surroundings provide you with an extensive range of touring opportunities including historical tours, golf, sea kayaking, salmon and trout fishing, hiking, cycling, beachcombing and birding.

Blessed with an abundance of lakes and rivers, the area around DesBarres Manor is a paradise for trout and salmon anglers from spring through to fall.
