La Reine

La Reine Village is a small community in the Abitibi-Temiscamingue Region, near the Quebec-Ontario border (population less than 350). It is located “where the world begins and where the world ends”, hence its designation of Capital of the World’s Tip (Capitale du Bout du Monde).

The village features huge doors, erected in 1998, which the community has named The Tip of the World’s Doors (Portes du Bout du Monde). This 6 metres-high monument is situated at the end of the 3 Avenue West.

It has attracted lots of visitors both in winter and in summer. Behind the doors a superb view of the La Reine River unfolds, and a trail punctuated with interpretive panes is an invitation to relax and learn more about the municipality. Actually, La Reine boasts many prime agricultural lands. In winter, the municipality is snowmobilers' gateway to Cochrane, Ontario.

On the other side of the river, guests will find a belvedere with a lookout tower as well as a small pedestrian path. It is possible to get there by canoe and by boat.
