BAIE-SAINT-PAUL, QC, Dec. 12, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Geographic Traveler, recognized as a benchmark in the tourism industry for 125 years,
published its list of top can't-miss winter destinations today. A superb achievement for Le Massif de Charlevoix,
which now proudly ranks on the prestigious "Best Winter Trips 2014"
list, alongside Paris, France; the Sauti za Busara Music Festival in
Stone Town (Zanzibar, Tanzania); the Gold Coast (Queensland,
Australia); Winter Wolf Viewing (Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National
Park); Nosara Beaches (Costa Rica); Lake Baikal (Siberia, Russia); Phu
Quoc (Vietnam) and a few other hand-picked destinations from around the
National Geographic's reputation is firmly established, as attested by the more than 257
million unique visitors to its website. This publication has also
attracted more than 4.8 million Twitter followers and 8 million
Facebook fans, making it one of the five most popular media in the
world. "We take pride in this prestigious ranking by National Geographic, especially following on the heels of the Canadian Tourism Awards
barely a week ago, where Le Massif de Charlevoix was named Innovator of
the Year," said Daniel Gauthier, Chairman of Groupe Le Massif's Board
of Directors. "We are happy to contribute to the development of this
industry and to position Charlevoix as an absolutely must-go
destination," he concluded with pride in this exceptional showcase
opportunity offered to a number of local businesses and producers that
share in this prestigious ranking.
While National Geographic suggests winter as the time for a trip to Le Massif, it also recommends
a visit anytime between June and October, when the tourist train is
running and thus generates interest in Hôtel La Ferme, one of the three
hubs of Le Massif de Charlevoix.
About Le Massif de Charlevoix
A year-round resort destination, Le Massif de Charlevoix was born of a
desire to share a fully integrated experience with curious, adventurous
clients who care about the planet. Its tourism product offer rests on
three pillars: Hôtel La Ferme, whose interior décor was named the most
beautiful in the world; The Train, which runs through 140 km of
exceptional scenery between a river and the mountains - a circuit
accessible only by rail; and The Mountain - much more than a ski
centre, which features a range of activities unique to North America,
such as a 7.5-km luge run over the highest vertical drop east of the
Rockies. Le Massif de Charlevoix seeks to do all things differently,
presenting a diverse and unique product offer for a wide range of
tourists, designed to fit every budget.
