Local businesses are offering a variety of packages, from a basic intro to a package deal including all kinds of activities to put together a day to remember in the company of a pack of adorable huskies.
Come and skate with your family at the region’s parks, trails, and ice loops. Introduce your children to a new sport they might love. Some skating centres even offer the possibility of skating at night for a one-of-a-kind experience as soon as night falls.
Cross-country ski or snowshoe through maintained trails in the parks and admire the snowy forest. For an introduction, enroll your children in one of the Laurentians’ cross-country ski schools. The activity and equipment rentals are free at Parc national d’Oka and at Parc national du Mont-Tremblant for children under the age of 18.
Experience a thrilling adventure, even in the middle of winter! Take advantage of Tyroparc’s Family Package and come and play on the mega-ziplines and via ferrata, in between hiking and climbing rock walls. What’s more, loads of activities are available to fill up your day, like snowshoeing, fatbiking, and snowmobiling. Jump into the adventure with both feet!
Come and ski at the Laurentians’ incredible mountains! Several package deals are available by age, level, and taste. Come and meet qualified ski instructors to get started in the sport or to learn advanced techniques. Some ski resorts have a snow park so that even the little ones can tackle, turns, jumps, and speed. A wonderful activity to initiate your children to the joys of winter and to get together for some family time!
