At Sacré-Cœur, Fermont and Port-Cartier, lovers of canines and snowy vistas will be thrilled to partake in a once-in-a-lifetime experience: dogsledding! What could be more exotic than discovering the wintery North Shore by winding through forests, snowy plains and icy lakes to the rhythm of four-legged friends and the swishing sound of your sled? It is the ideal time to bask in the splendour of the nature that surrounds you. Dogsledding is a unique, sporty and contemplative way to renew with this traditional means of transportation, called komatik, which was shown to the habitants of the Lower North Shore by the Inuit in the 19th century.
