Winter has some amazing experiences in store, and they’re much closer than you might think. In Sainte-Christine d’Auvergne, just 45 minutes from Québec City, you can enjoy a multitude of winter activities and bask in the charm of a cozy, authentic, luxurious log cabin.

Au Chalet en Bois Rond is an entire village of gorgeous log cabins built in the traditional style. Each one is unique, rustic, and chic. Want to book a weekend away with friends? A lovers’ retreat? A snowmobiling excursion? There’s a log cabin with your name on it. You can even choose the setting that suits your mood: on the lake, by the river, or in the forest.

Get Away


These cabins come equipped with everything you need, making it even easier to kick back and relax. Enjoy a festive meal with friends, then gather around the fireplace for great conversation and a glass of fine wine. Play a game of pool and finish off the evening relaxing in a private hot tub. It’s all there for you! For extra relaxation, you can even book a massage therapist to come to your cabin. If you don’t feel like cooking, just order something from the gourmet take‑out menu.

Treat Yourself to a Chef

Pamper yourself in the most delicious way possible: by booking a Chalet Chef! Just imagine how much fun you’ll have sitting down to an incredible meal with your friends in your own chalet.

Get out and Play!


Hop onto the skating rink for a friendly game of shinny. Go sledding on a nearby hill or slip on your snowshoes and head out on a wintry hike. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try hooking a few trout during a morning of ice fishing, go horseback riding along the snowy trails, or even try dogsledding. With so many options, you’ll have fun from the time you arrive to the time you leave!

Hop on a Snowmobile and Step on the Gas

If snowmobiling is more your speed, Sainte-Christine d’Auvergne is the place for you. It’s located at the crossroads between the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Mauricie, and Québec City area trails. That means you’ll have hundreds of kilometres to explore, right from the winter village. You can even rent a snowmobile at the reception desk.

Fill up on Goodies


Head out in search of local specialties: fine cheeses, wine, microbrews, artisanal bread and pastries, fruit and vegetable products, game meats, coffee, chocolate, and honey. Within the village itself, you can eat maple taffy to your heart’s content at the sugar shack or sit back and enjoy a pint of La Bois Rond, a beer brewed especially for Au Chalet en Bois Rond by microbrewery Le Roquemont. Head back to your chalet to cook up a wonderful meal in your fully equipped kitchen.

Spend an Evening around a Fire

Put on your mitts and tuque, wrap yourself in a blanket, and gather around the outdoor bonfire held every night near the reception building. Have a nice cup of something hot and settle in to hear a guest storyteller recounting myths and legends. It’s a magical moment that will warm your heart and shine in your memory for years to come.
