Enjoy some winter fun with snowshoeing. Once an essential means of winter travel for the indigenous people, snowshoeing has evolved over the years to become one of Quebec’s most popular cold season pastimes. Wherever you go in the province, you will find marked trails to explore with your snowshoes on. Whether you’re looking for a gentle family outing or a serious adventure, there’s something for everyone! No more excuses to stay indoors this winter: snowshoes are your best ally to explore our snowy territory.

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.
