Spend Friday evenings snowshoeing with an experienced Friends of Gatineau Park nature interpreter. Hiking in the moonlight, you will discover how animals survive winter!

  • Trails 60 and 61 from Chelsea Visitor Centre
  • Trail 63 from Mackenzie King Estate
  • Trail 72 from p15

Fun, discoveries, and heart-warming encounters are waiting for you. Come add your smile and your energy!

This activity is for everyone (minimum age: 13 years old). No snowshoeing experience necessary. Please note that while the hike is considered easy, there are a few slopes and hills. As this is considered a light aerobic activity and the weather is usually colder in the evenings, please dress accordingly. Registration mandatory.
