Did you know?

Charlevoix’s power of attraction began 400 million years ago when a meteorite landed.

To be discovered absolutely

Charlevoix is a coveted destination: not only do mountain hikers and foodies flock to the area, but whales like to visit too.

Skiing from the mountain tops to the river

Every winter, an impressive amount of snow covers the Charlevoix region, much to our delight. We’re great winter sports enthusiasts. Come December, our peaks are already blanketed in white and we’re ready to hit the slopes at Mont Grand-Fonds or Le Massif de Charlevoix with family or friends.

Le Massif de Charlevoix offers the highest vertical drop east of the Rockies.

These two resorts have recently become year-round outdoor destinations offering mountain biking, gondola rides, hiking and more. They really have it all! An unforgettable day awaits you!

Vallée des Glaces

The Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie boasts stunning views. The park comprises a network of deeply chiselled valleys surrounded by high peaks. The vertical drops, the spectacular landscape and the unique course of the Rivière Malbaie make this a unique and breathtaking site.

This park is one of the central areas of the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve.

Located in the park, the Vallée des Glaces offers a wide variety of activities including fatbiking, snowshoeing, walking, Nordic skiing and skating at the base of the cliffs. A shuttle service links the service centre to the valley.
