Come and release your crazy side in an outfitter!

Issued on 21st February 2017

Many of you will certainly agree: if there is a good time during the year that really allows us to enjoy winter with the family, it is during the spring break. Whether you continue to work or not, this time of year puts school and homework on hold and allows you to replenish your youth.

To take full advantage of the present, Mauricie outfitters offer you a wide range of activities to discover or rediscover before the end of winter is coming ... because yes the groundhog has made its prediction, it ends! These are the activities I suggest.

Ice fishing

The famous slogan of the region, "In Mauricie, it bites here!'' Is truly true, even in winter. With the quality and expertise of the region's outfitters, you will be well equipped to tease the trout, the best in the province. (You should ask Carey Price). In order to convince you even more, some outfitters even allow you to taste your catch on the spot. Enjoy your meal!

Dog sledding

For pet enthusiasts, let yourselves be treated with a dog sled ride in the beautiful outfitter trails. During your initiation, your guide called the "musher" will teach you some basic tricks to properly direct the sled and information about this dog breed. An incredible experience for you and your youth.

The snowmobile

With more than 5,000 km of marked trails, snowmobilers have a large playground in the area to enjoy this activity. Several outfitters offer packages with unavoidable relays joined with comfort and pleasure. Do you want to try this activity without having your own equipment? No problem, some places offer rental equipment, or even snowmobiling on site.

Do you want more?

Snowshoeing, skating, sliding and more are also part of the winter programming of the region's outfitters. For colder days, the indoor pool and spa will entertain you.

In order to catch your breath before the next adventure, the outfitters offer a personalized welcome on both the American and European levels. Cottage, hostel or even condos will satisfy all your needs.

If you are short on time or on budget, be aware that it is possible to go outfitting for the day only (without staying for the night)

Here are the outfitters that offer activities for spring break :

Gouin Dam and Magnan / Club Odanak / Touristic Domaine La Tuque / Gouin / Waban-Aki / Kanawata / Windigo / Relais 22 / Auberge du Lac-À-L'eau-Claire
