A ski-shoeing hike (Ski-Hok) to discover a little-known territory of the Jacques-Cartier National Park as well as to become familiar with this activity. Explore winter landscape on a ski-shoeing hike, a mix between cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, for a memorable experience in this wilderness. Important, it’s NOT a snowshoeing tour.

The first kilometres will allow you to get the proper equipment and the technique of travel, which will take us to a refuge where we will have a dinner break. Then, we will continue our trek in a zone a little more technical to master the rise and the descent of telemark type before the return to our point of departure.

The tour will allow you to properly acquire the equipment and master the technique to venture safely! Come try!
