Make the most of winter fun with Quebec Adventure Outdoor!

For some, a long winter is a reason to hibernate; for others, an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. If you identify with the latter or if you feel like shaking up your routine, Quebec Adventure Outdoor suggests one-of-a-kind businesses that are eager to show you a world of discoveries. Covered in abundant snow, Quebec offers myriad possibilities for families, couples and groups of friends. Put on your hats and gloves: dogsledding, ice climbing and winter ziplining are just a few of the activities you can do this season – and you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with breathtaking views of exceptional scenery!

For anyone who loves wide-open spaces and adventure, a dogsledding ride simply can’t be beat! See what it’s like to be a real live musher with the help of the guides at Entre Chien et Loup, a remarkable business at the heart of the 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 in Rawdon and go for a combo: 30 minutes of dogsledding led by a musher with the pack of huskies and a guided tour of the farm. Follow that with a hot beverage at the sugar shack on site.

Secrets Nordiques, at the Mont-Sainte-Anne ski resort, is sure to please. Choose one of the package deals for a dogsledding ride and learn more about the pack of Nordic dogs. A treat and a delicious hot drink await you on your return. Make the most of your visit and take the chairlift up the mountain for a view of the iced St. 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.

The vertiginous thrill of climbing sports

How would you like to climb an icy cliff? Ice climbing is offered by a number of providers in Quebec. With AventureX, try out this spectacular activity in complete safety under the supervision of experienced guides at either one of three sites in the Québec City area and Charlevoix region. Admire the beauty of the mountain from a unique point of view and choose between the rappelling course, the zipline or the via ferrata trail to make your way back down.

For another adventure, head to the Laurentians to Tyroparc: this mountain park is the only one to offer mega ziplines (among the longest and highest in Canada), via ferrata and snowmobiling in a single location.

You could also choose the package deals offered by Projet Vertical for a via ferrata expedition to reach the top of a waterfall. Amazing views of the falls and of the giant’s kettle will be yours to behold! Take in the sights and the sounds and savour this breathtaking experience.

Become one with nature

This is the time to embrace the season, to enjoy the calm atmosphere, to listen to the snow crack under your feet and to fill up on fresh air. Find your favourite activity at Parc régional Massif du Sud, Parc régional Mont-Ham or Vallée Bras-du-Nord and put your daily cares on hold. Choose from snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fatbiking or backcountry skiing and take advantage of onsite accommodations for a longer stay. This winter, answer the call of the wild!
