Package: Overnight In The Longhouse
The longhouse, a dwelling of the Iroquoian people built entirely of wood and bark and heated with three fires, gives visitors seeking unusual accommodation an authentic immersive experience. It’s a symbol of the family and legendary hospitality of these ancient peoples. In the magical setting of our National Longhouse, you will travel back to pre-colonial times to enjoy the experience of an overnight stay in this traditional dwelling.
This night of unusual accommodation is just as suitable for families, couples, and groups of friends as it is for school groups. This immersion in the Iroquoian ways of life will give you unforgettable memories of your stay in Wendake.
This package includes:
• Overnight stay at the Ekionkiestha’ National Longhouse;
• Our popular “Myths and Legends” activity: an authentic experience of the thousand-year-old traditions of Indigenous culture. A must for families, couples, and groups of friends alike;
• The services of a fire warden who takes care of your dreams and the fires throughout the night;
• A room at the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations for modern convenience;
• Sleeping bag;
• Access to the swimming pool*;
• Breakfast at Restaurant La Traite; and
• Service charge.
Overnight stays are offered in both winter and summer. The type of sleeping bags provided are chosen according to the temperature and the amount of fire ignited inside.

Additional active recommendation:
For a complete immersive experience, you can include one of our craft activities in this package ($). In addition to spending a treasured moment with one of our artisans, you will bring home the souvenir you made. There are three possibilities for craft workshops: making a traditional necklace, making a talking stick, or making a porcupine quill bracelet. In all three cases, your creation as well as its symbolic universe will be explained to you.
Activities offered in English and French, by reservation.
