3 activities at Le Massif de Charlevoix that are not skiing

Discover the mountain in a whole new way with these three original activities.

Swap your skis for warm winter boots and discover the mountain, its slopes and the St Lawrence River in a whole new way with these three original activities.


Le Massif has a 7.5-kilometer track reserved exclusively for sledding. Start from the top of the mountain and hit the slopes differently. The full activity takes about two hours. You will take a break mid-mountain to sip a hot drink and observe the view.

Dog Sledding

Always dreamed of piloting your own dog sled? You could finally do it thanks to the sleigh activities at Le Massif. Book a trip of one, two or three hours and go on discovering trails dedicated to this activity in small groups.


Going snowshoeing is rediscovering the grandiose beauty of the Charlevoix nature. Snowshoeing trails offer some of the most beautiful views of the St Lawrence, Isle-aux-Coudres and the Montmagny Archipelago. Beginners as well as experienced sportsmen will find a track to their liking.

Bonus: Helicopter Tours

Héli-Charlevoix offers helicopter tours every Saturday on the mountain. Two circuits are available: the 20 km loop or the 40 km loop. Admire the river and its surroundings like you have never seen them before.
