Quebec is, without a doubt, the snowmobile capital of the world, with its 33,000 km of federated trails. Let Charlevoix be your playground and discover this fascinating sport. A guide will take you on a two-to-eight-hour snowmobile ride where everything will be taken cared of.
To make this experience as pleasant as possible, each activity is personalized depending on the weather and experience of each participant.
You can also rent a snowmobile in Baie-Saint-Paul (10 min), with or without a guide and equipment.

Did you know that the movie “The Dog Who Stopped the War” (“La Guerre des Tuques”) was shot in Charlevoix? Bring back childhood memories by visiting Le Versant’s snow fort. Located at the reception area, between the pool and the ice rinks, the snow fort is definitely the most unique place to socialize. After a long day outside, enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate or a glass of hot wine. Call a truce and have some fun!
