This winter set off on an adventure to one of North America’s premier snowmobiling destinations. Every year the picturesque regions of Charlevoix, Québec, and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean are cloaked with 7 metres of fresh powdery snow, transforming them into a winter wonderland like no other. Nestled in this natural triangle you’ll find 5,300 kilometres of pristine marked trails just waiting to be explored. Get on your gear and get ready to speed through towering forests, rolling fields and past soaring mountains. Be sure to bring your camera, the breathtaking winterscapes and panoramas of the St. Lawrence River, Lake Saint-Jean, the Saguenay Fjord, and the Monts-Valin area truly are a sight to behold.
While you’re in the area you won’t want to miss the Casino de Charlevoix, the Carnaval de Québec in Old Québec, not to mention the many other attractions that make these regions world-renowned. Savour one of Québec’s hardy traditional dishes or a gourmet meal in a warm and friendly atmosphere and make yourself at home in one of the 12,000 cozy rooms in the area. From quaint and cute to luxurious suites at some of the best-known hotels in Canada and the United States, you will have no trouble finding the right accommodation for you.
