Parc National des Monts-Valin

Last year over the Family Day long weekend, I flew to Quebec City and drove three hours North to beautiful Parc National des Monts-Valin. Literally a winter wonderland with hut-to-hut backcountry snowshoeing or x-country skiing.

I had an unfortunate run-in with a corrupt memory card and lost all of my photography, so I decided to return again this year. Believe me, the park does not disappoint.

Parc national des Monts-Valin is a mountain 984m hight in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region. The Park is open all year round, with fishing and canoeing popular in the summer months. As seasons change into fall, the colorful foilage offers spectacular opportunities for hiking. But the real gem is the winter season, where a Snowcat shuttle transports guests to Vallée des Fantômes. The snow cover is stunning and the 3km hike up the mountain to Pic du Boc is worth all the effort. Save some energy for snow and fun, and playing in the soft powder en route to a hut for an overnight stay.
