You’ll begin the day with breakfast at the Mont-Albert Lodge, followed by a group departure by shuttle to the start of the trek at Thibault Lake. The trek begins with an approximated 500-meter ascent, heading for the top of Arthur-Allen Mountain which stands at 980 meters above sea level. A group lunch is planned at the top of Arthur-Allen Mountain and the trek then continues towards the peak of Blizzard Mountain… and does it ever deserve its name! Continuing toward Aube Peak (translates as “dawn” peak) which rises to 920 meters; on a clear day, you can admire the steep walls of the northern flank of the Chic-Chocs. As a rule, the winds blow very intensely on that very spot. After 12 km of trekking, you will come upon the Mésange lodge and refuge for the night. A much more rudimentary stay when compared to the 4-star hotel of the previous night, it is required in order to discover the wild path to the Chic-Chocs. The accommodations are still comfortable with bunk beds, wood stove, tables and outside amenities. Dinner and night at the refuge. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Distance: 12 km / Elevation and drop: +500 m, -360 m.
