After lunch, you’ll head out on snowshoes to go looking for animal tracks. You will be right in some fascinating wildlife habitats (beaver dams, deer runs, wolf hunting grounds, partridges, snowy owls, coyotes and anadian lynx). 

You'll visit the first Athabascan wood bison reserve in Quebec created to protect and study these animals, classified as anendangered species. Then you'll be taken to a sacred Native American ancestral site, erected by Dominique Rankin, Algonquin traditional chief. Our guide will explain their lifestyle as well as their different homes.
