Winter fun on two wheels

Fatbikes have oversized tires so that riders are equipped to discover the winter landscape, whether they are beginners or experts. Even though fatbiking is a little more physically demanding than traditional cycling, you're sure to enjoy this activity that makes it possible to access beautiful views. Snowcycle Adventure in Montreal and Vallée Bras-du-Nord in the Québec City region are two great options for fatbiking. The businesses and regional parks in the Quebec Adventure Outdoor network offer a perfect introduction to this sport thanks to bike rentals and guided tours.

Climb icy cliffs

Armed with an ice ax and crampons, you'll be able to rise to the challenges of ice climbing, whether you're experienced or not. Several businesses offer ice climbing, including Parcours Aventures, located in Saguenay in an enchanting environment, as well as Aventurex, which invites you to discover the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, known for its unique ice formation. Or how about winter via ferrata? Try it in the Laurentians at Tyroparc or in Charlevoix thanks to Projet Vertical. You will be amazed by the icy beauty of the mountain walls! And rest assured that your activity will take place completely safely!

Discover powder snow at its best

Do you like thrills and dreams of snowy mountains? You'll take great pleasure in slicing through the powder while practising off-trail skiing, either on your own or with a guide. Specialized businesses can be found all around Quebec: the Charlevoix backcountry with Traversée de Charlevoix, the summits of the superb Parc régional du Massif du Sud, the pristine slopes of the Chic-Chocs with Vertigo Aventures, or the magnificent private forest specially developed for off-trail skiing at Ski Saguenay. Happy skiing!
