Since 2013, Empire 47 has been developing a network exclusively dedicated to fatbikes. This is not a modified snowshoeing network! It’s not a modified mountain bike network either … it’s a fatbike center.

The Empire 47 team is therefore a pioneer of its kind. Over the years, it has developed expertise in the development of plows dedicated to grooming, and in maintenance technique.

Less than 25 minutes from downtown Quebec City, outdoor enthusiasts quickly made their way to Lac Delage to try out this growing sport.

Now with over 16,500 unique visits and over 4,000 rentals per season, it’s no wonder that since 2018 Empire 47 has been the busiest winter fatbike center in the world!

night rides

Night rides are the new trend! With the sun setting early during the winter season, we are seeing more and more little fireflies appearing around dinner time! Equipped with a heahlamp on the helmet and on the front of the bike, our two wheels enthusiasts come to enjoy an extraordinary winter atmosphere!

Imagine a full moon reflecting off the snow cover and cyclists riding around with lights in the distance, this is a sight not to be missed!

In addition, the conditions are often present. With the absence of the sun, the snow remains hard and compact which gives you better grip.

Empire 47 has therefore adapted to the phenomenon. Open until 9:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, the organization includes front lights on the handlebars free of charge after 3:00 p.m. and lights a cozy little fire outside. Also, it is possible to organize guided group outings during the evening *.

Inquire for details.

Whether you are a seasoned amateur or a beginner, the Night Rides are the perfect combination of winter fun and an unforgettable atmosphere!

Empire 47 offers a small snowshoeing network for all levels.

First of all, La Visite is a small 1.3 km trail with little elevation. It allows you to breathe the fresh air and appreciate the winter landscapes at your own pace.

The Les Trois Lacs trails and the new Pas-Roi are harder. In both cases, these trails will lead you to the summit lookout at 430m altitude for a breathtaking view.

The organization offers guided outings for tourist groups, school groups and corporate groups *. Inquire for details.
