Snowmobiling in Quebec's ZEC network
Set out to explore trails in the heart of nature

People who love the outdoors are sure to appreciate the offer from Quebec’s ZECs when planning their activities. Some of these lands are open to snowmobilers, who will be thrilled to explore these vast territories. ZECs provide their visitors with a true wilderness experience as well as the promise of ultimate freedom!

Please comply with sanitary measures from the department of public health at all times so you can enjoy winter safely.

Long live winter in Lanaudière!

This region is a mix of valleys in the south and mountainous regions in the north. ZEC Lavigne is located less than an hour from Joliette, one of the region’s main cities, and is a perfect place to set out for adventure in wide-open spaces. The trails of three snowmobile clubs (Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci, Saint-Côme and Saint-Zénon) cross the territory of this ZEC, and with a trail pass, snowmobilers can discover just how great snow conditions are in Lanaudière.

The region of Côte-Nord, a place of unbounded nature

Boasting hundreds of kilometres of trails, Côte-Nord is a snowmobiler’s dream. The landscape is marked by huge forests, wide trails and numerous bodies of water, not to mention the snowmobile bridges it is renowned for (the region is actually home to the longest in North America, and the view is spectacular to boot!) Snowmobilers wanting to explore further east can make their way to ZEC Matimek, where a white carpet leads to beautiful wooden areas and where visitors can combine their ride with some ice fishing – another popular activity in the region.

Conquering the Townships’ snowy peaks

The Appalachian foothills shape the magnificent landscapes of the Eastern Townships. Hop on your snowmobile and head out to discover ZEC Louise-Gosford; its 47 km of forest trails around Mount Gosford leads to splendorous views of untamed nature. Extend your stay by booking one of the six rustic units located on this impressive territory, for a full immersion and change of scenery!
