Tadoussac Bay and the Saguenay Fjord are the main attractions along this trail section. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the snowy landscape.
A few miles outside the village of Portneuf-sur-Mer, you will cross a 30-metre (100-foot) bridge over the Portneuf River. At night, the effect of the lights on the bridge is magical!
Cross the Manicouagan River on the longest snowmobile bridge in North America! This bridge is 213 metres (700 feet) long and about 28 metres (90 feet) high—and is a favourite among snowmobilers!
From Baie-Trinité, take a detour to Pointe-des-Monts to see one of North America’s oldest lighthouses. In clear weather, you can also catch a glimpse of the wind turbines on the other side of the St. Lawrence in Gaspésie.
Off-trail ride towards the far north
From Port-Cartier, adventure lovers can head north on an expedition to Fermont. Taking you through the taiga, this 400-km (250-mi.) ride provides access to several outfitters and gives you opportunities to observe caribou. Keep in mind that this is an expert ride, and you will need to be accompanied by a certified snowmobile guide.
This trail section runs along the St. Lawrence and gives you access to many charming villages.
Along the way, admire the islands of the Mingan Archipelago, which have been sculpted by the sea and wind.
