Come and enjoy winter in Quebec by taking part in its most popular activities. Because we get an average of between 3 to 5 meters or 9 and 15 feet of snow per year, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean is the perfect destination to make the most of the winter; outside. Our team of experienced and professional guides will make sure your experience is safe, comfortable and simply unforgettable!
Day 1: Snowmobiling (approx. 190 km or 120 miles)
You will be greeted in L'Anse-Saint-Jean by our guide, for a briefing on the three days to come. Once dressed warmly from head to toe with our snowmobile gear, we will load the material needed for the day and then its off into the magnificent backcountry of Lower Saguenay Fjord area. If conditions are right, you will explore the frozen Fjord and perhaps have the chance to meet fishermen, who will show you their catch of the day.
Day 2: Snowshoeing Eco-safari
You will then head off toward the Mont-Édouard skiing area where you will be invited to discover wintertime nature in the company of your tour guide. Mother Nature will provide you with exceptional views. On and off-track, you will climb the mountain to your destination, a cabin on top of Mont Edouard. End the day by choosing to snowshoe in the back country around the mountain or just relax.
Day 3: Dog Sledding
You will return to your car and head to your base camp in L'Anse Saint Jean. Then you will experience the thrill of dogsledding accompanied by an experienced musher. By dog sled, you will discover Lac Emmuraillé,a long narrow lake surrounded by cliffs.
