Set at an altitude of 615m, Auberge Montagne de Chic Choc affords wonderful views of the Reserve faunique de Matane and a magical spot to enjoy a wide range of wildlife activities. This is a place for those who have a love and a passion for the great outdoors and want to explore and be active, there is some effort involved in getting here but the reward is well worth it.
The property sits 55km south of Cap Chat on the Gaspe Peninsula, the drive from Montreal takes around six hours so we recommend breaking your journey en-route, from Quebec City the drive is five hours. It is not possible to drive directly to the lodge so guests are required to make their way to the main office in the seaside town of Cap Chat and from here the lodge will transport you up the mountain.
Auberge des Chic Choc has just 18 rooms, so can host a maximum of 36 guests at any one time. All rooms have one king or two twin beds, hairdryer, ensuite bathroom with bathrobes, towels and bathroom amenities. Rooms do not have a TV or telephones but Wi-Fi is available in the main lodge.
Meals are taken in the family-style dining room and feature local and regional cuisine. Guests dine together on large tables in front of panoramic windows, which encourages interaction and conversation. All meals are included and packed lunches are available if you plan to spend the whole day exploring.
There are a wide range of activities on offer. During the summer months wildlife viewing, hiking and mountain biking take precedence. Moose outnumber people here and you might also see caribou and white-tailed deer. Cast your eyes skywards to catch eagles, buzzards and falcons overhead. There is also a sauna and outdoor spa. When the weather turns colder and the snow falls the focus turns to winter-based activities including snowshoeing, hok skiing (a mix of snowshoeing and skiing), split boarding and alpine touring.
