The backcountry of Charlevoix

Autumn is a time to climb the highest peaks and admire the beauty of the foliage; take on that challenge at the heart of the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve! The Traversée de Charlevoix is a 105-km-long (65 mi.) trail through the boreal forest for hikers, expert cyclists and advanced skiers. Sports enthusiasts can choose a 7-day-long hiking or skiing adventure or a 4-day-long mountain bike ride. Rustic cottages make for great accommodations, and luggage transportation is available. Travellers who love the outdoors can also explore the network of trails by opting for short hikes and snowshoe expeditions, with or without accommodations.

The Fjord in all its splendour

Explore the Saguenay Fjord on a zodiac expedition with OrganisAction. Saturdays and Sundays until October 9, 2018, see the huge capes around the fjord, learn about the history of the area, or go seal- and bird-watching near the cliffs that stand more than 400 m tall (about 1,300 ft.). Zodiacs fit 12 passengers and are steered by a captain who will share the secrets of this one-of-a-kind fjord with you.

A wet vertical adventure

Dare to go on an adventure on the via ferrata trails of the Sainte-Anne Canyon, located 30 minutes from the city of Québec. See Canada’s nature in unexpected and spectacular ways thanks to Projet Vertical. Travel deep into the heart of the canyon, next to the powerful 74-meter-tall (242 ft.) waterfall of the Sainte-Anne River. Choose from a trek on the via ferrata circuit secured with a continuous life line, or rappelling or ziplining and rest assured you’ll be getting maximum thrills! For a combination of adventure, water and cliffs, Canyoning-Québec delivers a ton of adrenalin. Follow professional guides who will show you how to safely abseil waterfalls or go river trekking or even how to jump off a cliff into a deep pool of water!
