Brave winter … under a tent
From mid-October until mid-May, you can enjoy winter camping—roughing it—in certain campgrounds and national parks. Of course, sound camping experience and up to-date equipment are required.
Introductory sessions and group expeditions are offered by many adventure tourism operators, and some Native communities offer campers the chance to sleep in an igloo or tepee. There are so many ways to experience Québec’s wonderful winter first-hand!
Most campground operators are members of Camping Québec
, a non-profit organization representing 80,000 of the 100,000 campsites available in Québec. Sépaq
(a government corporation that manages natural sites and tourist facilities) has over 7,000 sites in national parks and wildlife reserves.
