There are also plenty of great places to stay in the region if you want to keep the winter magic going!

A fairy-tale destination for winter sports

Located in Ferme-Neuve, the Parc régional Montagne du Diable boasts an impressive trail network for cross-country skiing and skate skiing (42 km), backcountry skiing (56 km) and snowshoeing (80 km). What’s more, the park has an impressive 21-metre-high observation tower where visitors can admire the stunning view of the Upper Laurentians. If you’re looking for a longer excursion, why not stay overnight in a cabin or hut on the mountain? Baggage transportation is also available for a fee to make your trip up the mountain easier. Why not bring everything you need to enjoy a delicious cheese fondue by candlelight while you’re there?

A relaxing stay in a tiny house

Now’s your chance to reconnect with nature by staying in a tiny house in the Windigo lake and falls sector. These beautifully designed, well-equipped cabins are the perfect place to unwind, admire the starry skies, and take in the beauty of the Windigo falls during winter! During your stay, you’ll also have access to the vast trail network. Bring your snowshoes or cross-country skis to combine relaxation and your favourite winter activity!

Cottage life and cross-country skiing all in one place

The Village des Bâtisseurs sector is home to eight ski-in and ski-out cabins, two of which are on stilts. Simply put your skis on and step out the door for a great day of cross-country skiing or skate skiing. There are three shelters on the path for you to warm up before continuing on the mechanically groomed trails, which make up one of the most beautiful and largest ski areas in the Laurentians!
