Sentier international des Appalaches - Québec

Hi!

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!


The IAT-QC hiking season runs from June 24 to Thanksgiving (in Canada). 

From early May to 24 June, the trail is still closed, but it is possible to hike under certain conditions. Please check with the IAT-QC. We are in the boreal forest so, there is still snow in some areas and there is always a multitude of fallen trees in trails affecting hiking at this time of year. For reasons of safety and environmental protection, hikers are not allowed to move before opening.

After the Thanksgiving, the trail is considered closed due to various factors such as: the moose in the Matane Wildlife Reserve, the rut of caribou in the Gaspésie National Park, closing national parks and climate conditions vary greatly (early snow in the highest peaks), so for these reasons we can't practice long hike. But under certain conditions, it is possible to circulate in parts of IAT-QC. For more information, please contact the Office of the IAT-QC at (418) 562-7885 or info@sia-iat.com. 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.


Available now for 2014 - Packages of guided hike from 1 to 5 days with luggage and shelter facilities


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!

-The IAT-QC Team
