All the stops are within a 10-minute drive, so you’ll spend less time in the car and more time exploring.

Parc national du Mont-Orford - Activities

Parc National du Mont-Orford’s reputation as a mecca of wintersports precedes it, so be sure to pack your cross-country skis and/or snowshoes. The 13 marked, groomed and maintained cross-country skiing trails span a total of 50 kilometres suitable for any skill level. As for the snowshoeing, 50 kilometres are offers and will take you to beautiful viewpoints overlooking the region. Prefer to hike or fatbike? There are four and 30 kilometres of trails available, respectively.


After a day spent playing in the snow, nothing is more comforting than a hot fondue meal. Good news: At Magog’s Fondissimo restaurant, both sweet (chocolate) and savoury (cheese, Chinese hot pot) options are on the menu. And don’t miss the ever-changing seasonal specials! Bottom line? You’re sure to love the casual, rustic ambiance of this charming BYOB restaurant located just 10 minutes from Parc National du Mont-Orford.

Parc National du Mont-Orford – Lodging

Come nightfall, head back to Parc National du Mont-Orford for a stay in one of three accommodation options. If comfort is a priority, choose a fully equipped cottage, which makes a luxe and convenient base camp for all your excursions. At the other end of the spectrum is the rustic refuge, which is heated but has no running water and no electricity. (You can cook on an outdoor stove.) And somewhere in the middle? An EXP cottage with massive windows overlooking Lac Stukely.
