Recommendations for Snowmobilers from our Hoteliers

We asked several hotel owners who welcome snowmobilers in their establishments every winter to recommend trails or sectors worth visiting in their areas. They called on local experts to help them out and here are their suggestions:

Ferme 5 Étoiles holiday resort, Sacré-Coeur, Côte-Nord

Ambassador: Angelo Bouchard, outdoor guide at Ferme 5 Étoiles

Recommendation: Cap Sainte-Marguerite

Ferme 5 Etoiles_motoneigeLocated 15 minutes from the Ferme 5 Étoiles holiday resort, Cap Sainte-Marguerite is accessible via a forest trail and offers one of the best views of the Saguenay Fjord. As Angelo says, “It’s a really beautiful spot. When you arrive at the top, you can’t help but think, ‘Wow! It’s magnificent!’ as you perceive the true beauty and grandeur of this majestic fjord and finally understand what a fjord really is.”

Château Fraser Hotel, Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac, Bas-Saint-Laurent

Ambassador: Jean-Eudes Bouchard

Recommendation: Trans-Québec trail #85 (TQ85) between Cabano and Dégelis

Château Fraser_snowmobileSnowmobile enthusiast Jean-Eudes Bouchard has been president of the Témiscouata snowmobile club for a number of years and is responsible for grooming several kilometres of trails in this area. Although he knows these trails very well, he is still amazed by their beauty. One segment of TQ85 along Lake Témiscouata between Cabano and Dégelis offers some of the best panoramic views, according to him, especially at the three trestle bridges, with their open views of the lake and its rocky shores.

Hôtel Universel, Rivière-du-Loup, Bas-Saint-Laurent

Ambassador: Joanna Lortie

Recommendation: The trails of Rivière-du-Loup

Hotel_Universel_snowmobileWhat stands out about the Rivière-du-Loup trails is how wide and well-maintained they are—every year, visitors make positive comments to that effect. In addition, there are so many trails to explore in this area that you can spend several days at a hotel without ever riding the same trail twice. Two diehard snowmobilers, Oneil Dupont and André Beaulieu, from the Les Aventuriers snowmobile club in Saint-Antonin, designed these loops. Everyone who uses these trails is indebted to them!
