Quebec offers cross-country skiers – young and old, recreational and competitive – an amazing diversity of trails. There is nothing more enchanting than a cross-country ski trip on a beautiful layer of fresh snow through our snowy valleys and forests. There are hundreds of kilometers of trails to choose from, whether you’re a classic skier or a skater, in the mood for a short stroll or a real expedition. On your own in a regional park or with a guide from a Quality-Safety certified business, you can’t help but enjoy this very complete physical activity that can be practiced without moderation.

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.
