Adventure Component

The adventure and outdoor component has always been part of the region’s DNA. Do you remember the time when you had to take a bus as a ski lift to ski downhill in the Massif de Charlevoix? We then go back to the 80s.


The first ski lift only saw the light of day in 1992. Everything was kept in the wild and no artificial snow was made. Completely raw fun !, This is perhaps where the current slogan of the revamped station comes from.

In the past, the Charlevoix region was mainly frequented by skiers eager for adrenaline and in search of sublime natural sliding conditions; steep undergrowth worthy of the playgrounds of Western Canada. The Massif Ski Resort has been for many years one of the main tourist attractions in the region.


Times have changed a lot. The Charlevoix region has evolved well and so have its commercial activities. We are far from the days of peace, when the small plot of Charlevoix land was frequented only by raging skiers and their wooden skis!


Tourism companies have started to establish their business activities there. Small restaurants, inns, B&Bs and lodges are now numerous in the area.


The tourist traffic is in strong growth and with the eminent arrival of Club Med on the slopes of the Massif, it is obvious that a media boom is coming very soon. Many companies whose fields of activity are adventure and the outdoors have decided to participate in the economic development of the region, since they saw a strong potential for tourism development.

With the arrival of seasoned promoters, such as Daniel Gauthier, Groupe Le Germain, Le Farimont …, Charlevoix is now appearing on the map as a destination of choice for adventure and outdoor activities!


A huge choice of packages is now available. Whether it is to satisfy your desire for height or greatness, or quite simply to let yourself be rocked by the waves of the river or a river in a boat of your choice.


There is undoubtedly a variety of organized activities that will satisfy your most wacky urges!
