Québec is known for great snowmobiling
that is well organized. Its incredible network of marked trails offers signage comparable to that of international road networks.
With 33,700 kilometres (20,900 mi.) of trails, the snowmobiling network has more kilometres than the paved road network.
Criss-crossing the entire province, the groomed and patrolled trails offer access to hundreds of service areas, rest stops and accommodations.
The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec
(FCMQ) is a federation of 235 snowmobile clubs, responsible for the maintenance of the impressive trail network. Access rights
are required to use these trails, and, for the most part, the proceeds from access rights are paid to the clubs for trail maintenance.
You can obtain access rights from clubs and from many snowmobile dealers, lodging providers and restaurants located near trails.
The FCMQ is sensitive to the environmental impact of snowmobiling, so in 2008 09 it launched a five-year environmental action plan.
This plan seeks in part to promote sustainable snowmobiling in Québec and to reduce the environmental impact of the sport
through a partnership with Tree Canada.
