After your visit to the Robert-Bourassa generating facility, get back on the road and see the look outs of the last generating station on the Grande Rivière: La Grande-1. This run-of-river generating station is also home to impressive plant and wildlife environments. It's a magnificent example of human know-how that is respectful of nature!

The Upichiwin lookout is a must, close to a traditionnal fishing site, realized in collaboration with the Chisasibi Heritage and Cultural Centre.

We suggest our visitors to continue to the cree community of Chisasibi near the James bay coast. You may visit the village, eat in town, visit the Heritage and Cultural Centre and continue to the James bay coast, 13 km past the community.
