The last few months have allowed many people to get back to their roots and get back to nature. The next few weeks will be no different, so take the opportunity to get some fresh air and (re)discover Quebec's nature. Here are 5 ideas for outdoor activities to do alone or with your family, anywhere in Quebec. In addition, Alizée advises you on the best places to practice these activities.

1. Cross-country skiing

If you already have your skis or if you wish to invest this year, this could be the year where you will get the most out of your equipment.

In any case, the Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix offers many trails that are among the most beautiful in Quebec. Hikes in the boreal forest, at the top of the massif with a magnificent view of the river and its ice, it's the perfect place to relax !

2. Snowshoeing

As with the previous activity, an investment in equipment is required to avoid a rental, but it's not a bad idea this year.

For a snowshoe hike, Parc national du Mont-Mégantic offers breathtaking views of the forest that stretches as far as the eye can see. A great way to get away from the city !

3. Skating

Another classic, skating is very popular on the city's rinks. But what could be better than skating in the forest in front of a breathtaking landscape?

The Domaine enchanteur, or Domaine de la forêt perdue, offers a 15 kilometer trail in the Mauricie region. In addition, the domain is home to many animals that will watch you enjoy the outdoors and nature.

4. The fatbike

For a little more thrill and exercise, there's the fatbike! Again, Quebec's trails are exceptionally beautiful.

Oka National Park has seven of them, for all levels. If you don't have enough, the trails of the Oka Abbey alone will offer you another 40 km. The ideal activity to get some exercise and think about something else!

5. The panoramic luge

Still in the mood for sensation and a little less in the way of physical exercise, Le Massif de Charlevoix offers 7.5 km of sledding with breathtaking scenery.

This is not an extreme sport, as the speed and direction of the sled are easily controlled. A great way to practice a different activity while getting some fresh air!

No matter what activity or activities you practice, Alizée will accompany you to warm you up and make you enjoy it to the fullest! 

For mental and physical health, it is important to get some fresh air and not stay indoors. By taking your precautions and respecting government rules, it is still possible to have fun and get a change of scenery! Enjoy it while there is only that to do and above all, be back at 8 p.m.
