The Traversées de la Gaspésie are all-inclusive sports vacations. Each edition is a week-long journey to the heart of beauty, an experience combining passion, merry-making, sharing and excellence, joy and mutual assistance, sport and nature… and of course, adventure and discovery.

Every year since 2003, Les Traversées de la Gaspésie, a not-for-profit organisation, has hosted an unforgettable week of cross-country skiing in the enchanting setting of the Gaspé Peninsula. Since 2015, participants have had the option of taking to the trails on snowshoes or on skis. Snowshoers and skiers enjoy the same infrastructure and safety measures.

In the fall, the organisation also hosts the TDLG on foot, an adventure during which hikers ramble some of the Gaspé’s finest trails while the fall colours are at most striking. The week of merry-making, friendship, personal challenge, pleasure, seaside and mountains brings together men and women of all ages, from all walks of life and from around the world.

Yes, the TDLG is a sports challenge, but it is also very accessible. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the personal challenge but we also offer participants the opportunity to take on shorter trails nearly every day. And the TDLG is also a vacation. If you want to take a break for a day and rest your muscles… why not? Just let our team of volunteers know. Treat yourself and enjoy our massage therapy service.

The wide open spaces, the seashore, the majestic forests… everything is within reach as you traverse the Gaspé Peninsula. Whether you choose to ski, snowshoe, or hike, the colourful fall trails and snowy winter routes will take you through some of the most beautiful scenery the Gaspé has to offer. Even the animals will be out and waiting for you!

Music is always an inherent part of the adventure. Before taking to the trail, at the shelters along the way and when you arrive at the end of the road at day’s end as well as in the evening, our musicians share their finest repertoires with you, playing music from the Gaspé and away. We also organise professional lectures and our visual artists in residence will delight you with their performance art. You might just be invited to join them and add your own special touch…

Every day, some of the region’s finest chefs will prepare tasty treats to help you discover the local products featured on their gourmet menus. From seafood and fish to local meats and even strawberry wine… the carefully prepared meals are always a source of comfort, happiness and fellowship.
