Mattawa is a beautiful community with rich culture and history just waiting to be discovered. Mattawa Voyageur Country was once a crossroads for famous explorers, such as Samuel de Champlain, during their adventures. Larger-than-life wooden statues, which are dispersed throughout the town, celebrate historical figures such as explorers, lumberjacks, and pioneers. In Downtown Mattawa, you’ll discover cozy restaurants, boutiques, the Clermont Duval Art Gallery, and the Mattawa Museum.
Don’t miss Mattawa’s music festival, Mattawa Voyageur Days, which takes place during the third weekend in July! Bonfield is also lovely, with its beautiful countryside, excellent fishing, family friendly parks, and lovely trails.
