Did you know that the Jacques-Cartier region, located just 20 minutes from Québec City, is the ideal destination for your spring getaway? It’s true! While the region might be primarily known for snow-covered slopes in the winter and rivers cascading through valleys and mountains in the summer, the Jacques-Cartier region has a lot to offer year round, especially in the spring, when nature awakens to put on a show you won’t want to miss!

Find your ideal cabin

One of the best ways to reap the benefits of nature is to immerse yourself in it completely and enjoy one or more nights away from the noise and light pollution of the city. The Jacques-Cartier region abounds in magnificent cabins, built and equipped for the utmost comfort.

You're sure to find the ideal cabin to suit your needs, whether you're on your own, with family or with friends.
