Guides are super knowledgable and gave various explanations on the forest, in addition to showing how to snowshoe. Lunch was good and you get some free time to snowshoe on your own. My only feedback is a logo or something for Quatre Natures on their shuttle bus as it wasn't immediately obvious. Otherwise a fantastic tour and I hope to visit in the summer for canoeing!

It was a wonderful half-day of snowshoeing in Jacques Cartier national park for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teens). Our guide was on time for the pick up and made the whole day smooth. We hiked, had a nice lunch with hot cocoa and then had some free time to hike around a little more before heading back in the van. Great day!

It was a first ever visit. I did not expect so many constructions! What work, talent, imagination, constancy, impressive! I highly recommend it.

Very pretty, even though it lasts a few seconds and the lines are huge. They should put a rail for the sleds to get on

It was a lot of fun and some very nice ice cream creations. A nice place.
