The Wippi

IMPORTANT

Because of the COVID, certain control and hygiene measures are applied at the time of boarding. Also, all seats are disinfected after each use.

The shuttle “Le Wippi” sails on the waters of Lake Massawippi during the summer. It is intended for cyclists and pedestrians and allows crossing the lake between the municipalities of Ayer’s Cliff and North Hatley.
With a capacity of 8 people, with or without their bikes, the boarding points are located at the municipal docks of Ayer’s Cliff (Route 141, opposite the rest area) and North Hatley (Main Street, opposite School Street). Each trip takes approximately one hour.

It is necessary to reserve your seat.  ( https://lewippi.com/booking )

“The Wippi” is equipped with racks to keep the bikes in place during the ride.

For the 2020 season, the boat sails from Thursday to Sunday at a rate of 6 trips per day and thus ensures the continuous transport of cyclists and pedestrians.
The Wippi is in operation until September 2nd as well as during weekends in the fall up to and including Thanksgiving.

The Wippi is a great way to connect the  Les Grandes-Fourches bike trail (via the Axe du sommet or the Axe de la Massawippi) to that of the  Tomifobia Nature Trail. The trip takes approximately one hour.

The boarding sites are located at the municipal wharfs of Ayer’s Cliff (route 141, in front of the rest area) and of North Hatley (Main road, in front of the School street).

You must reserve your trip on the shuttle by visiting the reservation web site below.

The Ayer's Cliff Agricultural Exposition - or Ayer's Cliff Fair

The Ayer’s Cliff Agricultural Exposition – or Ayer’s Cliff Fair – are the common names for the annual exhibition of the Stanstead County Agricultural Society.The first meeting of the Stanstead County Agricultural Society was held in 1845 and was primarily intended to allow local farmers to come together and exchange ideas on farming. Residents of this county would enter their farm animals and crops to compete. During this time, the ladies exhibited their cuisine and their craft work. From 1845 to 1872, exhibitions were held at various locations in the county, but in 1872 Ayer’s Cliff, in Quebec, became its permanent home.

The first three-day fair was held in 1913. Horse racing was one of the main attractions at that time. Today, the Ayer’s Cliff Fair retained the original events, but added various attractions, such as rides, musical performances and many arcade games with prizes. Families from around the world gather to enjoy the excitement and camaraderie of this annual four-day exhibition.
