Mégantic by Snowmobile

Route des Sommets, along which you’ll find majestic lakes, balsam firs, white-tailed deer, friendly locals, charming villages and vast expanses, is a gem in this region. It’s best explored by—you guessed it!—snowmobile.

Mégantic by Snowmobile

If snowmobiling is your winter activity of choice, do yourself a favour and explore this region—if only because here, Mother Nature tends to be extra generous with snowfall. There are seven outstanding snowmobile trails to ride, including three popular loops like the J.-Armand Bombardier, which spans 260 kilometres. Throw in picturesque landscapes and world-class hospitality for a perfect stay.

Microbrasserie La Gare'Nison

“A place to enjoy time together” is how this microbrewery humbly describes itself and truly, what could be better? It goes without saying that the craft beers on tap are all produced on-site and worth a try, especially standouts like Méganticoise, a blonde, and Les Sacrifiés, the signature IPA.

Motel Le Quiet

If you’re travelling by snowmobile, Le Quiet is hands down the best place to spend the night. In fact, this Lac-Mégantic motel is directly accessible via a snowmobile trail that runs in the back of the property. Expect a warm welcome, comfortable rooms, good eats at the motel’s restaurant and, of course, an excellent location.
