If you love back-country skiing, you’ll be happy to know that a third sector specifically for that purpose was added to the Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier. Starting just 2.5 km (1.5 mi.) from the Discovery and Services Centre, this new sector near the Sautauriski River has a forest of mature birches, maples and cedars. The sector covers close to 50 hectares (123 acres) and has a 200 m (656 ft.) drop. A thrill for skiers!

Escape from the daily grind

After filling your lungs with fresh air, treat your body to a bit of pampering! Stop by Nordique spa Stoneham for an exceptional moment of relaxation. Located on the shores of the majestic Jacques-Cartier River at the heart of a splendid valley, this extraordinary spa offers Finnish saunas, a Nordic bath, outdoor hot tubs and various spaces for massages.

Feeling peckish? Grab a bite at Brasserie artisanale La Souche known for its creative, delectable cuisine and wash it down with a delicious beer brewed on site. Another option, for creative, healthy, flavoursome dishes, is L’ilot Repère gourmand at the Entourage-sur-le-Lac Hotel, which is sure to delight the finest palates!
