4-day guided snowmobiling adventure
Three iconic Quebec regions
Unique complementary activities
A concentrate of winter Quebec over 4 full days:
This morning marks your contact with your snowmobile, and the start of your journey on the snow-covered trails of Quebec. Transfer to our departure base, delivery of your equipment, allocation of your machine and safety and driving briefing.
Then you will set off for the Laurentian mountains which border the region north of Quebec. After a typical lunch in the boreal forest, you will continue your journey to your overnight accommodation located in the heart of the Laurentian natural reserve.
You are leaving the Laurentians this morning to head to the splendid Saguenay region, known not only for its spectacular landscapes, but also for its Fjord. The track you take is located between river and mountains with superb views of the peaks and rocky capes that advance in the Saguenay. After taking a break for a refreshing lunch in a snowmobile relay station, you will get back in the saddle to arrive at the end of the afternoon at your hotel, which welcomes you for the night. Dinner will take place in the dining room and a warm evening will take you quietly until a well-deserved night.
After a good breakfast, off you go for an other day of snowmobiling. Along the way, you will stop in the little village of L’Anse Saint Jean for the lunch. In the afternoon, discover unexpected views of the Charlevoix. You will descent to the St Lawrence at La Malbaie and spend the evening at Le Manoir du petit Casino.
This last day snowmobiling will make you stop at the little city of Baie St Paul for the Lunch, then among the maountains of La Côte de Beaupré you will join our Base of Sainte Brigitte de Laval.
After the equipment brelease, and a debreifing with your guide, you will join Quebec by shuttle.
Two emblematic regions of Quebec:
The Laurentians, which lie on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River and are home to an important mountain range covered with boreal forest, and the Charlevoix known for its alternating fluvial and mountainous landscapes, are two of the most beautiful regions of Quebec,
that you will cross during your journey.
Carefully selected accommodation:
After a day of riding your snowmobile in idyllic landscapes, a well-deserved rest awaits you in traditional hotels, chalets and inns chosen for their simple comfort as much as for their location or their authentic character.
A snowmobile raid supervised by professionals:
Winter in Quebec cannot be improvised. For many years, Nord Expé has been training and employing certified professionals in snowmobiling. We guarantee recent equipment in perfect condition and expert assistance on site.
Original complementary activities:
Beyond the pleasure of crossing the great expanses on the handlebars of your snowmobile, we offer activities to discover the culture of our region: visit a Native American site, explore Quebec City and visit the Hôtel de Glace. .
Your snowmobile in a few words….

Stability and comfort are increased compared to the basic economic model called “Sport” and the 600 cc snowmobile most often offered. The 2-speed gearbox will help you with difficult passages.
