Country Elegance in the Mountains of Gaspésie

At the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula, the Appalachian Mountains stand proudly, dominating the landscape as if to proclaim how beautiful it is in their midst. Dozens of bird species as well as moose and caribou make their home in this truly exceptional environment.

This winter, head to the Chic-Choc Mountains to enjoy some of the best telemark skiing, snowboarding and alpine touring in Eastern Canada. Gaspésie National Park also offers visitors 13 snowshoeing trails and 22 km of groomed cross-country ski trails. Fans of backcountry skiing can explore 6 marked but ungroomed routes. Beginners will be surprised at the peaks they can reach without getting out of breath, while more experienced skiers can make the most of this backcountry skiing paradise via 190 km of trails dotted with 15 huts.

At the end of the day, enjoy the elegance of the Gîte du Mont-Albert hotel. Relax in the sauna or unwind at the bar. Then savour a delicious meal featuring regional products such as smoked Atlantic salmon, lamb or kid goat while sharing the day’s highlights. You won’t regret choosing the high mountains of Gaspésie as your next vacation destination!
