For a snowmobile or ATV ride

With 1,200 km of trails winding through a variety of landscapes, from the wilderness to the city, the Centre-du-Québec region is the ideal destination for a snowmobile or ATV ride. The region is renowned not only for the quality of its trails, but also for the warm welcome of the locals and the many food and lodging options close to the trails.

For a special “micro-adventure”

The town of Victoriaville specializes in heartwarming micro-adventures hosted by welcoming locals this winter! How about a horse-drawn carriage ride to discover the snow-covered hinterland of Notre-Dame-de-Ham and breathe in the fresh air? Another example: at the Sainte-Hélène Auberge and Nordic Spa, you can treat yourself to a complete experience for all the senses, crowned with a refined, gourmet 4-course menu featuring local produce. Or how about learning how to make maple cones at the Aux petits plaisirs maple grove, take up rock climbing with a qualified instructor from Campus Escalade, do yoga in a Mongolian yurt or make homemade bath bombs? These authentic, local experiences are sure to make for a memorable holiday!

For a getaway that’s a perfect fit

Culture, homegrown food, sports, family activities or relaxation: you can choose to fill your excursion in the region with whatever you like! There’s a wide range of things to do to suit all tastes and preferences, from winter sports in regional parks to visits to art galleries and tastings of local ingredients. Don’t forget to take a well-deserved break and enjoy a fine meal at one of the gourmet attractions on your itinerary or a longer stay in cozy accommodations where you can rest and relax.

This winter, choose a vacation in the Centre-du-Québec region!
