mountains around the Saguenay Fjord. Your dream adventure takes
place in a winter wonderland and a landscape full of valleys, lakes,
rivers as you go through the mixed boreal forest with your devoted
pack of dogs. After your outing, retreat to the welcoming wooden inn
for a meal of delicious local flavours. And for a family trip, head
over to Kinadapt

Lawrence River, or complete your day with a snowshoeing trek through
the magnificent maple grove for an hour or two. And keep your eyes
open to spot birds, hares and deer.
