Ice fishing

FISHING ENTHUSIASTS: TO YOUR BRIMBALS!

A family activity par excellence, ice fishing, or ice fishing as we call it in Quebec, will delight both young and old fishermen!  Accessible to all and ideal for an introduction to winter and snow vacations, ice fishing allows you to enjoy the intense winter sunshine.  Well installed on the frozen pond, you will be in a great position to tease the trout!

Snowshoes

LIVE WINTER TO THE RHYTHM OF YOUR STEPS

Long used by adventurers and coureurs des bois to get around in the forest, snowshoes greatly facilitate the exploration of our snow-covered spaces! Put them on to explore our 23 km of trails around Lac Taureau without getting stuck in the snow.

With your family or on your own, you can enjoy the tranquility of nature and the proximity of several animal species. According to our statistics (not scientific), there is a good chance that you will come across a deer on your trail! Keep your eyes open!

Cross-country skiing

DISCOVER THE PLEASURE OF SKIING!

Easy to practice, cross-country skiing allows you to discover Quebec's wide open spaces and snowy forests while doing a physical activity of varying intensity. Novice as well as intermediate skiers will have fun discovering our trails on a 23-kilometre trail. Depending on the mood of the moment, you can choose among our four marked trails in the forest surrounding the Auberge.

Skates

SHOW US YOUR BEST TRICKS!

When winter sets in, our pond is transformed into two huge skating rinks that are maintained daily. One is very often used for team sports, and the other forms a magnifying glass around the fishermen who patiently wait for a trout to bite the hook. Put on one of our pairs of skates and show us what you can do! 

Team sports

GET HOCKEY FEVER!

Ice Hockey
This discipline is part of Quebec's purest sporting tradition. The skating rink, located just across the street from the Inn, is available for many winter activities, including hockey. The goals are already there, ready to receive your shots!

Broom ball on ice
Intense and fun, a broomball game on ice is always a resounding success. This beautiful winter activity on the ice rink allows both great bursts of laughter between participants and a good expenditure of energy as a group.

Trapper's hike

BECOME A COUREUR DES BOIS AND HIKE WITH OUR TRAPPER GUIDE!

Discover all the secrets of nature with the help of a real trapper. He will tell you a multitude of tips, stories and knowledge about the immense forest that surrounds us. You will walk our trails in a safe, guided and, above all, entertaining and constructive way!

Sledding on tube

HURTLE DOWN THE SLOPES AT FULL SPEED!
