Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec
Chic-Chocs certainly caters to the adventurous. Access in winter is by skiis or Snocat, and this eco-lodge in the Matane Wildlife Reserve offers hybrid sports like splitboarding and meta-skiing (a mix of snowshoeing and skiing). A summer stay isn’t complete without a full day of canyoning (hiking, rappelling and swimming). A spa and outdoor hot tubs help undo inevitable aches from sampling all these sports.
Room to book: The lodge only has 18 rooms, with either two twin beds or one king-size bed, so you can’t go wrong.
