Snowmobile trip in Quebec

In partnership with Quebec's tourism regions.

Motorized sports that allow us to explore wide-open spaces through abundant snow are growing in popularity in Quebec. Thousands of kilometres of marked, well-maintained trails beckon to snowmobilers, promising adventure, thrills and an unrivalled feeling of freedom. And in this context where travelling between regions is to be avoided, snowmobiling is a great activity for anyone wanting to reconnect with the joys of winter close to home.

Before heading out, be sure to check the sanitary measures and safety precautions recommended by the Fédération des Clubs de Motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ). Please comply with sanitary measures from the department of public health at all times so you can enjoy winter safely.

Turn it into a full vacation!

Many hotels and resorts cater to snowmobilers by offering packages with accommodations that often include a snowmobile rental and the necessary gear for a successful outing. Some of these are also part of the Secure Hotels program from the FCMQ, which recognizes establishments where snowmobilers will find an enclosure or garage to prevent vehicle theft. And after an invigorating ride, it’s easy to retreat to the hotel and make the most of its services!

Are you familiar with the ZEC network?

ZECs are controlled zones for activities like hunting, ice fishing, wildlife-watching, and in some cases, snowmobiling as well. Many of these zones also offer various rustic accommodations, including cottages, ready-to-camp units and yurts. They make perfect playgrounds for visitors looking to fully immerse themselves in nature.

Maybe you prefer four-wheeling?

Another option for those who seek adventure on Quebec’s snow-covered trails is quad riding! This four-season activity is very popular during winter and calls out to adventurers who want to explore on an ATV or side-by-side vehicle. Just like the snowmobile clubs, quad clubs ensure that trails are in good condition and that members can circulate safely.
