Mont-Sainte-Anne

2000, boulevard du Beau-Pré
Beaupré
QC, G0A 1E0

With an altitude of 803 m (2634.5'), this mountain in the Laurentians is only 40 km (24.9 miles) from downtown Québec City.

A variety of outdoor activities may be practised here year-round, making it the recreational destination of choice for sport enthusiasts. There is so much to do at Mont-Sainte-Anne that you could not possibly do everything in one day! Summer activities include mountain biking, golfing, hiking, canyoning, handgliding and a ropes course.

In the winter, you can go downhill or cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fatbiking or ice canyoning. Sport equipment may be rented onsite. This resort has its own ski school for those who would like to improve their confidence on the slopes.

If you would like to try something original, how about doing some canicross, going disc golfing or testing your balance on a slack line? For children, there are push bikes and a playground.

In the fall, be sure to take a stroll through the woods to admire the stunning multi-coloured forest canopy. Alternately, you may take in the leafy sea of reds and yellows from aboard a cable car as you travel to the top of the mountain; the view is just as spectacular!
