Plan a day of outdoor activities with family!

There are all sorts of things to do in winter in this region. Are you a fan of cross-country skiing? Choose any of the nine centres where you can practise the sport, including Station touristique Duchesnay, boasting 51 km (31.7 mi.) of trails. If you prefer snowshoeing, check out the Grand-Héron Park and Mont Wright, known for its rich ecosystems. Another idea is to try ice fishing at the Lac Beauport Outfitters or to go tube sliding at the popular Village Vacances Valcartier centre. How about a bit of skating? The splendid rink on Beauport Lake and the trail in the woods of the Grand-Héron Park are great options!

Inject a few thrills into your vacation!

The Stoneham Mountain Resort and the Le Relais Ski Centre have close to 80 trails for skiers and snowboarders to explore, including some ranked as “very difficult” and “extreme”. For a dogsledding expedition, put your trust in the valiant Nordic dogs of Aventure Inukshuk and Aventures Nord-Bec. If your goal is to try ice climbing, the instructors of Passion escalade are there to show you the ropes and guide you along the icy cliffs. Want to go for a ride? How about fatbiking at Empire 47 and Centre Castor or snowmobiling at the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve, home to 500 km (310.7 mi.) of trails.
