7 activities to enjoy winter in La Jacques-Cartier



Winter has unfolded its white carpet and the vast territory of La Jacques-Cartier overflows with sports activities, original and entertaining, so that young and old can have fun. It’s not a matter of embarking: here are 7 outdoor activities to put in the family journal now!
1. Dog sled
 Walking on snowy trails with sled dogs is unusual. Allowing you to enjoy the outdoors and discover a region from a new angle, this is an unsurpassed activity if you are looking for new adventures. These walks are offered at Aventures Nord-Bec, Pourvoirie du Lac-Beauport and Inukshuk Adventure.
2. Experience the charming charm of the ice hotel
This ephemeral work of art made entirely of ice and snow is surprising for its unique character. Discover the Great Hall, the Chapel, the Great Slip, the Exhibitions and the Ice Bar. An unforgettable Nordic experience awaits you to spend the night in one of the 42 rooms and suites with access to spas and outdoor sauna. Looking for other types of unusual accommodation to discover this winter, discover our proposals in this article.
3.Recover childhood joy from winter sliding
 Hidden from head to toe, nothing better than attacking winter with an air chamber with your left hand and a comforting drink with your right hand. Located 20 minutes from Quebec City, Valcartier Vacation Village is the largest winter playground in the United States with more than 35 snow slides. The interior slides and the heated waterway will convince you to wear shorts and swimsuits to end the day in a tropical environment.
4.Go for miles on the ice
 In the middle of a lake or under a magnificent forest cover, ice skating sites offer long trails in the middle of nature. An activity to practice as a family at low cost! Discover the many kilometers of trails available in the Grand Héron Park area, the Lac-Beauport skating rink or the Shannon Sports Chalet.
5.Marvel in the picture
 Do you want to learn about cross-country skiing or rediscover the pleasures of snowshoes? More than one hundred kilometers of trails spread across many courses that cross the region. Equipment rental is possible at the Duchesnay tourist station. In addition, access to its 47 km of trails is free for children 17 and under accompanied by an adult. Check out our full article on the subject here.
6. Ski the most beautiful family alpine centers in Quebec
 Located 15 minutes from each other, the Stoneham Resort and the Le Relais ski center offer exceptional skiing conditions. Among the best family centers in Quebec, there are a variety of trails for all levels available day and night. Many services are offered on site: restaurant, bar, private ski lessons, nursery, rental and more.
7. Fishing and mittens
 Let your children discover an unusual winter activity: ice fishing! Faithful to a tradition that comes to us from the Nordic peoples, white fishing has something to fascinate for its somewhat unusual side. Your children will feel satisfied when they leave their vigorous water catch. The table is set to provoke the fish under the ice, even with his tuque, his mittens and his scarf in the seeded bay of Duchesnay!


Several other activities are possible in the region. Dozens of miles of Fatbike and bike rentals are available in the Jacques Cartier National Park, the Sentiers du Moulin and the Empire 47.
