Details and Pricing

Lift your eyes towards the sky and let the canopy of stars inspire your journey!

Recently certified as a Canadian Dark Sky Preserve, the enchanting Au Diable Vert site allows you to discover the canopy of stars. Located in Glen Sutton, come discover a novel and intriguing world through this innovative activity, that combines the technology of several cutting-edge companies from around the globe.

Cradled in heated stadium seats, and perched at over 1,000 feet of altitude, this open air spectacle takes place in a multilevel mountain side amphitheater in Quebec’s newest Dark Sky Preserve at Au Diable Vert in Sutton, Quebec.

Every guest will receive a newly developed augmented reality headset created by Aryzon in the Netherlands, which will allow them to see the actual night sky, with a digital overlay of the constellations and the names of stars and planets. This headset is yours to keep and take home after the show, so you can continue to enjoy your starry discoveries with your own smartphone.

Combine your tour through the sky with a stay in one of Au Diable Vert mountain view suites, rustic cabins or tree houses and enjoy some of the other activities like kayaking or VeloVolant.
