This site was created in order to help you plan hikes in our trail. Whether you are looking to go hiking for a whole day, a whole week, or a whole month, you will find most of the information you need here. Feel free to visit our site in order to get your plans started!
Please note that the IAT-QC hiking season runs from June 24 to Thanksgiving (in Canada). If you need more information or if you wish to hike outside of those dates, please contact us by e-mail or by phone. Our office is usually open from Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm during the hiking season and once a week when out of season.
If you are looking for information about the state of the trail, please visit the State of the Trail section.
The purchase of topographic maps or of a topoguide should be considered, may your hike be a short one or be a longer trip.
Also, we offer promotional items which you can order by filling out the right form. All funds collected go towards the constant improvement of the trail!
You should also consult The Accommodation section where all the relevant information about your accommodation options on the trail can be found.
The Partner Service Network should come in handy whether you are looking for an accommodation outside of the trail, a shuttle service, a restaurant or an adrenaline rush! The Partner Service Network will help you get more out of your hiking experience.
However, if after visiting the website you still have questions, feel free to contact us.
In the meantime, we hope that your tour around our site will lead you to memorable hiking experiences!
