All kinds of practical tools to locate you in our territories
Sépaq's extensive team relies on outstanding enthusiasts who strive to ensure that visitors, no matter their favorite field of activity, can have the best possible experience at our destinations throughout Québec.
A special mention goes to our geomatics department, which strives to distribute a variety of cartographic products free of charge to meet the needs of anglers, hunters, hikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. Let's take a look at the full extent of their work.
For hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts
Whether your nature outing takes you to a national park, a wildlife reserve, or a tourist establishment, you’ll also have the opportunity to get hold of some maps that could be very useful indeed. Hiking and backcountry trail maps, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing maps, camping and canoe-camping maps – there's no shortage of maps at your disposal! As for anglers and hunters, you can also get your hands on KML (Google Earth) and IMG (for GPS) files that will help you find your way around the territory.
You know the best part of all this? Most maps are georeferenced, providing your location at any time by way of your phone, even if there’s no cellular signal. However, you must have previously downloaded the mobile application Avenza Maps on your device (via the App Store® or Google Play StoreTM). Subsequently, you will access the maps of Sépaq via the Map Store of the application. Also, take a look at the posters on the territory to easily download some of our maps depending on where you are.
The maps of Sépaq lakes offer much more than a bathymetry of our waterways; they’re now targeting favourable fishing sites on many of the network's most popular lakes, for our four flagship species: brook trout, lake trout, walleye, and pike.
A lot of specific locations have been identified by our experienced guides to help our anglers succeed with their catch. This exclusive Sépaq initiative is a first in the industry!
In addition to lake maps, anglers also have access to general maps, as well as KML (Google Earth) and IMG (for GPS) files in order to move about the area more easily.
Experienced hunters know it very well: solid knowledge of the territory is one of the key factors if you want to get your hands on coveted game. The geomatics team is therefore proposing various tools that will help hunters prepare for their hunting trip in the most suitable way. Maps of hunting sectors in wildlife reserves, as well as KML files (Google Earth) and IMG (for GPS), offer everything you need to explore the chosen territory and locate the desired game during your stay.
Another interesting aspect for hunters: a microSD card (for GPS Garmin) of the wildlife reserve that will welcome you for your hunting trip is offered free of charge to all group leaders.
About Sépaq's map products
Sépaq's map products are, for the most part, updated on an annual basis in order to provide as much information as possible about a given territory. The maps are available in the Map Library section of each establishment and are adapted according to the activity offering of the chosen destination.
