Located in Quebec’s Laurentian highlands, this outdoor museum is a two-kilometre loop and can be explored on foot, by skies or snowshoes. With seven information stations on ice, glaciers and snowflakes, the museum is open on weekends. Consider an overnight stay in the IGLOFT, a hybrid igloo/loft located on the lake.
