La Grande-1 generating station guided visits

Make a stop at the La Grande-1 power plant, about 45 minutes from Radisson. 

A tour of the powerhouse and the nearby facilities will show you a magnificent example of human ingenuity: a structure built with respect for nature, fauna, and flora. You will also be able to see a video on the environmental studies carried out in collaboration with the Crees.

Plan a stop at the Upichiwin lookout, near a traditional Cree fishing site.

How visits work

Because of the important distance between Robert‑Bourassa and La Grande-1, it is impossible to visit both installations during the same day. Planning a 3-day stay is necessary to do so. 
Transport to LG-1 is not included. Please plan a 1h15 travel time to reach the guided visit's departure point.
