Best hotels in Hearst

Hearst Hotels

The “Moose Capital of Canada” and the “Little Quebec of Ontario”, the francophone town of Hearst is also known for its rich forestry heritage, and proud blend of French, Oji-Cree, and Euro-Canadian culture. A vibrant community set within an all-natural landscape of dense forests, glass-like lakes, and rippling rivers, it’s also a year-round hotspot for outdoorsy pursuits. In the summer you can spend your days hiking, canoeing, and fishing, whilst winter powders the cross country ski runs and over 1,000 kilometers of snow-dusted snowmobile trails.

Things to see

The Heritage Sawmill Marketplace provides a captivating glimpse into Hearst’s pioneer past. Housed within a rustic wooden building, the museum’s collection of artefacts, exhibits, and photos detail the life and times of sawmill workers, their families, and the forest itself. An all season’s playground, Hearst Cross-Country Ski and Snowshoeing Club is a popular hiking haunt come late spring, and a snowy playground come winter. Home to over 28 kilometers of trails that weave through tranquil woodland, the club also offers lessons and rental services. If a little art appreciation is on the cards, then be sure to check out 815 Gallery at the Place des Arts de Hearst. The sleek contemporary space showcases the talents of local and regional artists, with works that include paintings, sculptures, and photography. For golf enthusiasts, Hearst Golf Club ticks all the boxes. The 9-hole course features bent grass greens and bluegrass fairways, as well as a restaurant, bar, and pro shop.

Where to stay

You’ll find much of the joie de vivre in downtown Hearst, known locally as Centre-Ville. Dotted with restaurants, shops and bars, it’s also home to a Farmers’ Market (July to September) and entertainment at the Place des Arts. If you’re really looking for an escape though, the surrounding scenery is smattered with campgrounds and RV Parks. Just 37 kilometers northwest, Fushimi Lake Provincial Park offers top notch camping facilities as well as plenty of scope for peaceful outdoor recreation.

How to get to Hearst

Hearst’s nearest airport is Hearst (René Fontaine) Municipal Airport, situated just under 3 kilometers to the northwest of town.

Hearst is easily accessible whether you’re driving from the airport or from further afield, with the Trans-Canada Highway 11 passing straight through it. The town can also be reached by Canadian National Railway services, as well as by coaches operated by Ontario Northland.
