Description

As winter arrives in the region of Saguenay, the landscape shifts from a lush green to endless kilometres of snow-covered scenes.  Suddenly, entire communities are isolated from the rest of Quebec.  But the people of Saguenay are resilient, friendly, and are more than keen on sharing their beautiful winter wonderland with daring travelers.  Via snowmobile, on a dogsled, or strapped to a pair of snowshoes, you’ll travel through the Saguenay Fjord and it’s majestic landscape that overlook Monts-Valin National Park.  From high upon the cliffs, the views over the fjord that winds its way from Lac-St-Jean to the Saint Lawrence River, will take your breath away.  Be carried back in time by locals song and dance, enjoy a late night campfire under the stars, learn how to ice fish…  A once-in-a-lifetime journey through Quebec’s wintery kingdom.

Highlights

  • Two full days of snowmobiling, including the Mont-Valins region
  • Full day of dog sledding
  • An exceptional winter wonderland
  • Traditionally decorated, comfortable accommodations
  • A welcoming community with a unique cultural background
  • A variety of activities: snowshoeing, ice fishing, ice hockey…

Customer Reviews

"We have been back for a month and still dreaming about this trip! The service, organisation and travel documents were fine, as were the welcome and the transfers. At Cap-au-Leste and the Huron Site everythings was fine too. The Cap-au-Leste site is amazing! We chose the 2 days snowmobile package, the equipment was great and kept us warm. We really liked our guides Genevieve, Eric and Jessica. The second day (140km) was a bit too long for us and the orther couples. You should offer a long outing for speed lover and a shorter one for the rest of us. We were really pleased of our stay and will probably come back in a few years" 22/03/2018
