Snowmobiling in James Bay
The territory of James Bay is furrowed by many snowmobile trails, with their natural and cultural wonders and which give access to the attractions of its valleys and mountains. In fact, the region is a destination of choice for snowmobilers who discover the grandiose spectacle of the boreal forest over 1500 km of organized trails.
Some of the snowmobile trails join north-eastern Ontario and northern Quebec net. Besides, accompanied by an experienced guide, tourists can get off the beaten path and experience the thrill of cross-country snowmobiling across the land of endless snow and wide open spaces. Snowmobile rallies, races and rides are frequent here.
