10+ Daring Winter Activities in Quebec Maritime 


The first time I saw a fatbike was at the Riôtel Matane when we were visiting during the summer. Useful on sandy and rocky beaches, these bikes are also adapted for the snow. Bundle up, put on your helmet and give it a spin.


There is no greater thrill than being pulled through the snow by a team of huskies dogs on a sled. You can learn how to mush yourself or sit back and have a guide take you at Ferme 5 Etoiles. This family own adventure resort has plenty of activities year around.

Ice Climbing

Not for the faint of heart but certainly for the adventurous, the beauty of a mountain can be admired as you scale the snow and ice while ice climbing.

Ice Fishing

Another very traditional of the many winter activities in Quebec is ice fishing. It is what you imagined, a hole is drilled into thick ice on a lake and you drop your line to catch fish. An outfitter provide pre-drilled wholes, heated fishing hut, fishing gear and guidance.


One of the most exciting things I did when I was in university was riding a snowmobile (or ski-doo) through fields with a friend. I would love to get back on one and be thrilled with the speed and adventure of this unique winter sport.


There are many, many natural snowshoe trails which you can visit in Quebec Maritime. Snowshoes have come a long way from the larger clunky raquettes which resemble tennis rackets made from hardwood frames with rawhide lacings. 

Ice Skating

Whether skating in an outdoor rink (and playing a bit of shiny hockey) or touring through a local part, there are plenty of opportunities to lace up your ice skates.


The first time I tried tubing on a large hill was when we toured the Hotel de Glace Valcartier, just north of Quebec City. A great alternative for non-skiers or a day off the slopes, snow tubing has more of an adrenaline rush than you may think.
