Snowmobiling

Are you longing to speed through endless miles of snow and enjoy an unforgettable experience? If so, then snowmobiling in Québec is for you! Offering a delectably thick snow cover, a network of 33,000 km of trails and the freedom of the untouched wilderness, Québec is understandably a top destination for snowmobiling, a sport invented right here.

The groomed and sign-posted trails criss-crossing the province offer a full range of services and accommodations for every taste. Plan your trip by consulting the various snowmobiling information sources available. Whether you’re looking for info on snowmobile trail permits, snow conditions, trail maps or accommodations, our useful links will provide the answers to your questions. Happy trails!

The first “snow machines”—the granddaddies of the snowmobile as we know it today—rolled off the Bombardier assembly line in 1936 and had a seven-passenger capacity. True snowmobiles weren’t marketed by Bombardier until 1959–1960.

Québec’s trails offer thrills galore for snowmobilers with a thirst for adventure and new horizons. Glide over frozen lakes, explore the vast boreal forest or travel to magical spots inaccessible by car. The most memorable adventures await you!
