During the winter, Kouchibouguac National Park visitors can enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, winter walking and even back-country camping.

The trails start at Pijeboogwek, a cozy, heated hut where you can wax your skis or rent equipment for the day. Those who would like to try a more rustic kind of winter accommodation without sleeping outdoors will love the rustic shelters, located along the cross-country ski trail. The shelters offer a warm place to overnight and are accessible by ski, snowshoe or foot (conditions permitting).
