Outdoor winter fun at Le Baluchon

Calling all winter fanatics! Le Baluchon, an eco-resort in the Mauricie region, is a paradise for outdoor skating on the freshly resurfaced lake and also boasts exceptional conditions for cross-country skiing thanks to impeccably maintained trails that are a joy to discover. Download the Ondago application, which uses your mobile device’s GPS, to access the map of trails and reach the most beautiful views.

For an original activity, try fatbiking and explore the trails on site, or visit the kennel of sled dogs. Fred Manseau and his team share their passion, know-how, and above all their respect, for the tireless dogs as they take you on an amazing dogsledding ride.

Winter via ferrata at Projet Vertical

Located about a half-hour drive east of Québec City in the Sainte-Anne Canyon, Projet Vertical is where you’ll find the one-and-only four-season via ferrata trail! There is also a monkey bridge, rappelling, a zipline and more. Whether you’re trying it for the first time or you’re used to adventurous activities, you’ll find a package that’s perfect for you. At Projet Vertical, kids can go on the via ferrata trail starting at 6 years old (in the summer) or 8 years old (in the winter) and the zipline is open to kids as young as 4 years of age. If you’re seeking even greater thrills, get a view of the Canyon 60 meters (almost 200 ft.) above the gorge. The ideal place to test your bravery!
And guess what… a new via ferrata trail will be opening in the near future in the La Malbaie area.
