Should you want to get out of town this winter but not really far from Montreal or Quebec City, if you want scenery views and astonishing (or not so astonishing if you have been raised here) wonders of local nature, but you are done with ski resorts and all the touristic traps – where would you go? We have three hints for you, so grab your backpack, jump in a car and turn on your favorite playlist, we will guide you!


A perfect place for ice fishing! The only season when tomcod migrates is exactly the winter, starting from the end of December and up to the middle of February. Rent a warm fishing shack on the river and fish right from inside all day (and night) long.

Kenauk Nature

What can be more Canadian than dog sledding? Okay, after the maple syrup and hockey culture :) Kenauk Nature is, maybe, the largest private land next to the big cities in Eastern North America, so enjoy the magnificent cottages separated from one another with miles of snow and forest. And do not forget about the dogs – sled them!

La Sucrerie de la Montagne

An authentic “sugar shack” that is open all year-round. Sure, you can come in summer, but the true experience is a winter one, right? Not only just a sugar shack but almost a village with cozy chalets which are really charming during the snow season.
