5 days guided snowmobile tour-SNOWMOBILE RIDE IN LUXURY
Quebec-Charlevoix

Snowmobile guided tour 8 days-7 nights

Between river and mountains, a short distance from Quebec City, lies a place of wide open spaces and untamed wilderness. The region of Charlevoix is one of the most beautiful in the province. Its rolling hills are covered in dense forests that give onto the magnificent St. Lawrence River and the iconic Saguenay Fjord, whose waters are seized by ice through the winter months. In the heart of this fantastic scenery rest charming, comfortable inns with classic style. The region has likewise developed a local cuisine enjoyed and appreciated by travelers. We propose a journey unlike any other; by day, you’ll glide over enchanting landscapes, experiencing true winter adventure, and by night, you’ll eat well and rest in the comfort of first class accommodations.
