Winter Hikes & Craft Beers

Outdoor adventure and local flavours come together at Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook. Come for the winter activities (hiking, snowshoeing, fatbiking) and ready-to-camp sites, stay for the craft beers of Microbrasserie Coaticook and award-winning cheeses of La Station cheese shop.

Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook

You’ll love this season’s latest attraction: hiking trails that wind through the scenic winter wonderland. There are also marked snowshoe and fatbiking trails (they’re dog-friendly to boot!) to explore with your own gear or on-site rentals. Feeling competitive? Try Yukigassen, a game imported from Japan that takes the classic snowball fight to the next level.

Microbrasserie Coaticook

After a day outside, there’s nothing better than kicking back in the warm ambiance of a microbrewery known for its originality, authenticity and great beer—not to mention divine beer-battered fish n’ chips! Order a Découverte flight to try all nine signature brews, and don’t miss seasonal specialities like cranberry, raspberry, Gose, NEIPA and maple.

Lodging at Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook

Love to camp, dislike packing gear? Try a stay at a fully equipped shelter that can comfortably accommodate up to six people. Included in the rental price is access to snowshoe, fatbike and hiking trails so you can make the most of your wilderness stay.

Fromagerie La Station

The Bolduc family has been making cheese on its expansive farm for four generations—and that savoir-faire truly pays off! La Station offers certified organic dairy, honey and maple products made without pesticides, herbicides or GMOs. Many have won regional, provincial and national prizes, too! Visit to sample cheese, maple syrup and the best grilled cheese you’ll ever eat, served with a freshly brewed coffee.
