Chic-Chac is an outdoor company specializing in adventure tourism, including guided backcountry skiing (heliskiing and catskiing). Most of their activities take place in Murdochville, a small village at the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula and the Chic-Choc mountain range. Chic-Chac offers various activities throughout the seasons: guided backcountry skiing (catskiing, heliskiing, T-bar at Mont Miller and skinning), mountain biking, rafting, fishing, lodging and meals.

Chic-Chac operates year-round, offering a complete range of activities adapted to each season. In the spring, Chic-Chac offers rafting experiences on the Madeleine and York rivers. In the summer, camping, canoeing, kayaking, fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking and motocross are a few examples of the activities offered. The Centre de Plein Air du Lac York, an outdoor recreation centre on Lake York located 8 km (5 mi.) from Murdochville, offers cottage rentals in the heart of Gaspésie, near the three national parks (Gaspésie, Forillon and Rocher-Percé). All of these activities are also offered in the fall, in addition to hunting.
