Part treasure hunt, part orienteering, geocaching is a popular outdoor activity that can be enjoyed in the wilderness or in the city. With the help of a GPS, search for “caches” using geographical coordinates and explore off the beaten path areas. This activity will add a fun touch to your hikes with family and friends. There are over 3 million geocaches in the world and Quebec hosts over 43,000 of them! Look for a Quality-Safety certified business or a regional park to find geocaches near your home or to plan a geocaching excursion on your next vacation in Quebec.

Charlevoix is a region where natural and cultural attractions pair up with soaring mountains and the colossal St. Lawrence River. A UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, the Tourisme Charlevoix visitor region is a must-see for practising outdoor and adventure activities. Both Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie and Parc national des Grands-Jardins offer a full lineup of outdoor activities including hiking, via ferrata, canoeing, kayaking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and snowmobiling. See the region’s 350 million-year-old crater, plan a long-distance hike on La Traversée de Charlevoix’s 100 km trail that crisscrosses the backcountry, offering beautiful vistas across the region, or the more daring can try winter kayaking amid the ice floes. This is but a short list of the territory’s many assorted visitor experiences.
