If holidays rime with moving for you, Mont-Saint-Anne is surely meant for you. Pick your favorite: biking, hiking or a whole host of activities at the foot of the hills (canine village, pumptrack, kids playground, Disc Golf, tree-to-tree adventure trails, etc.). Mont-Saint-Anne is buzzing with activity during summer. Our favorites: ride on la Baptême, a 4.5 km trail built in 2019 for which the reputation is already made.

Le Grand Vallon golf club
Tempted by the idea of improving your swing during your holidays? See life in shades of green at Golf Le Grand Vallon! Rated 4 stars, the 6618-yard site outlooking Mont-Saint-Anne will charm you. A layout of 18 holes with normal 72, edged by trees and punctuated by 40 pure white sand pits, four lakes and a vast plainland easily elevate it as one of the most beautiful golf clubs in Quebec.

Any hikers in the room? Côte-de-Beaupré is crawling with trails and breathtaking peaks to ascend. Walk the Sentier des Caps, the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area or the Mestachibo trail to be rewarded with stunning landscapes, breathtaking points of view but mainly a revitalization at the very heart of our region’s nature. Love it!

Sailing and kitesurf enthusiasm? Fortunate that the Côte-de-Beaupré runs alongside a magnificent playground: Saint-Lawrence River. During your holidays, visit the windsurfing area of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré for a safe and fun nautical immersion. Don’t forget your own equipment, there’s no rental on site!

A few minutes away from Old Quebec combine history and outdoors at Chute-Montmorency park. The site is dominated by the impressive 83-meter-high waterfall. What a show it is! You can admire its beauty and its strength in a number of ways: panoramic tour, guided tours, on foot or for the more adventurous, with the via ferrata. Oh! Do not forget to try the brand new contemplative platform at the foot of the waterfall. Simply STUNNING!

If the last few months were hectic for you, a revitalization is needed. Plan a visit at Canyon Sainte-Anne, to stock up on energy while enjoying the benefits of nature thanks to a forest walk or by admiring the impressive 74-meter-high waterfall (higher than the Niagara falls!) Many viewpoints and suspended bridges will allow you to discover the Canyon and its charming landscape.
