Adventure is at our fingertips. One hour from Windigo, the Fontbrune outfitter capitalizes on its spectacular snowmobile experience (take a driving license!).

They provide the polar: anti cold hoods, boots, helmet, overalls, jacket, gloves and under gloves (a very practical tool to take a picture).

Once you get onto the machine, the column moves and meanders along the frozen lake, skirting the ice concretions, to a cottage on the edge of the forest, where comforting snacks await: bear sausages and moose ham, made by Eric Fontbrune, the master of the place, trapper in his spare time, who lines up his hunting trophies along the bar of his outfitter. It is rather difficult not to greet the moose with its gigantic woods, that sits above each chimney. This also goes for that of Rabaska Lodge (name given to the traditional Indian boat), a real leisure center with a restaurant, a terrace and a marina, a very popular haven in summer for guests arriving by boat. Here, there is a strong focus on the cocooning experience: a bar with live music, a billiard and a hot tub in front of each cottage. It is a pleasure to slip into the bubbling water while sipping a cocktail and admiring the snowpack.
