Station Touristique Duchesnay: Auberge Duchesnay Hotel

A trip to Quebec is not complete without visiting Station Touristique Duchesnay in Sainte Catherine de la Jacques Cartier, only a 30 minutes drive from Quebec City. Here you will find everything you need for your winter eco-adventure, such as dog sledding, snowing shoeing, cross country skiing and Hôtel de Glace (The Ice Hotel), which without doubt will be one of the "coolest" places you will ever visit.

Snowshoeing  Tours
are available and highly
recommended as a fun
activity for an everyday city sidewalker.  It's a wonderful way to get to know  the  surrounding area while getting a new found respect for nature. Snowshoeing  up  and down  the trails seeking local beaver dwellers is definitely fun, specially when after you  may  find yourself sliding most of the way down the cliff on your rear end... AAAAH!

Auberge Duchesnay is a 48 room lodge style hotel nestled in a pristine natural environment on Lake Saint-Joseph. The staff is cordial, hospitable and eager to help with any questions. Spa treatments and a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner is found on the premises.

Bistro-bar Le Quatre-Temps is located inside Hotel Aubege Duchesney. A large yet cozy restaurant with a country feel, roaring fireplaces and views of Lac Saint-Joseph offers a bistro style cuisine made with regional Québec products. Bistro-bar Le Quatre-Temps is a wonderful place to warm up with a hot meal after a day of winter activities.
