Quebec is known for its sugar shacks, or cabane à sucre, where about 75 percent of the world’s maple syrup is produced. Most are only open during the warmer sugar season (March and April), but some welcome guests year-round—and offer attractions beyond cutesy gift shops with maple-sugar leafs. Visit L’Érablière le Chemin du Roy, where a rib-sticking meal (pea soup, maple ham), sleigh ride, and, yes, some take-home candy is just $26 (call ahead for reservations), or, nearby, L’Érablière du Lac-Beauport, which features exhibits highlighting the industry’s history and trapping heritage.
