The journey begins in Volvo’s XC90 PHEV, a hybrid car. The advantage of the PHEV? It allows us to be more environmentally friendly and participate in a more sustainable lifestyle – given its electric motor – while keeping the safety of gasoline as a backup. Autonomy is not a headache, so the trip looks promising. Luggage in the hold, coffees filled, snacks ready, we are ready to go!

It goes without saying that when we cross the Adirondacks, we go to Lake George, a town in Warren County. The area has some beautiful beaches including Lake George Beach, Shepard Park Beach and the very popular Million Dollar Beach where tourists and locals alike gather to relax and take a dip to cool off.


There are also many choices of water activities: boat cruises, pedal boats, kayaking, paddle boarding and jet skiing. It is also possible to book a Tiki Tour for a party or celebration with friends or family! The area also offers a host of great restaurants overlooking the lake and inviting local stores.

When visiting Lake George on a cold day, you can take the opportunity to stroll the streets, play a round of miniature golf or grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants in the area. Horseback riding is also a possibility! Shopping enthusiast? Head to The Outlets in Lake George to find the best deals.

At Huttopia, a site known for its fully equipped glamping tents, located in the municipality of Lake Luzerne. Bathroom, cots and blankets, sink, fridge, utensils, and even a wood stove to stay warm in the cold season: tempting, right?

Promoting sustainable tourism, more than 275 acres of forest are offered to campers. Ideal for hiking! On site, it is possible to go to the local bistro to taste delicious pizzas and some dishes prepared with care by the employees of the place, to swim in the large pool built just one year ago, to wander in the woods and to take part in the various activities offered by the site.

The plug-in hybrid vehicle can also be recharged by plugging it into a home charging station or a public charging station. It also offers a longer range in pure electric mode thanks to a more powerful battery and electric motor.
