The Duplessis region is characterized by its immensity and sparse population. This hinterland in the heart of the boreal forest has a coastline nearly 1,000 kilometers long, half of which follows the region's main highway. Who could have imagined a playground like this?-big as all outdoors and perfect for all manner of outdoor activities.

Summer and winter alike, our small urban and nature parks and tourist attractions together with our vast regional and national parks are a great introduction to spectacular land and seascapes teeming with a diversity of animal and plant life.

Whether you're scuba diving beneath the waves or exploring terra firma on foot, snowshoes, or skis, you'll want to take the time to drink in every drop of what this dazzling, unforgettable region has to offer. Explore the islands and archipelagos of the coast by sail or sea kayak, roar on a snowmobile through vast expanses of boreal forest or along Basse-Côte-Nord, hang out by the docks, or stroll on seaside boardwalks. Whatever you do, your surroundings will make it spectacular.

For summer delights or the joys of winter, you're sure to experience all the nature and adventure you could wish for!

When the cold weather season comes to Duplessis, the words of famous Natashquan poet Gilles Vigneault couldn't ring more true: "My country's not a country, it's winter!" The region's wide open spaces turn into a huge snow-covered playground where the chills are guaranteed to thrill.

Duplessis is perfect for short snowmobile rides by the St. Lawrence in the Port-Cartier/Sept-Îles area or longer trips along the Route Blanche in Basse-Côte-Nord or the backcountry of Caniapiscau.

Throughout the region, beaches, lakes, mountains, and parks are all paradise in miniature for snowshoeing, dogsledding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, skating, ice fishing, and even ice climbing! Whatever you like to get up to, come get a real taste of winter in our sports, leisure, and outdoor centers!
