5. Go snowmobiling!

Where: On the Northern Odyssey
When: Anytime!

There’s no other way to put it: if you haven’t gone snowmobiling on the Chaleur region’s extensive trail system, you’re missing out.

*If you’re not yet convinced, we published a great article all about snowmobiling in the Chaleur region.

Reach out to one of the three snowmobile clubs – Chaleur Snowmobile Club, Supervillage Trailblazers, and Nepisiguit Sports Lodge – and ask them about their many activities and suppers. You’ll surely have a blast, make new friends and maybe even discover your new favourite winter hobby!

6. Escape Mission Evasion

Where: 30 Chemin Tremblay, Petit-Rocher Sud
When: Anytime! (Call ahead)

You’ll have between 45 and 60 minutes, locked in a room with your friends, to search for clues and solve puzzles.

Can you escape?

Call ahead of time to book your session!
