The Groulx mountain region is the most southerly arctic tundra in the world. Located in the northern part of the province of Quebec, this mountain range extends over 100 square kilometres. The particularity of this hiking environment is the total absence of any path or indication allowing orientation. It is virgin territory, freedom in its purest form where I learned both about trekking, but also a lot about me as a hiker and as a person. I consider the expeditions that I often undertake in these mountains as moments of reconnection with myself. Over the years, I’ve been testing my backcountry skills several times in this hostile region. Either on foot or by ski, I familiarized myself with the mountains, the lakes and the terrain until I knew this territory like the back of my hand. Over the years, this acquired knowledge has allowed me to gain confidence and thus push my limits in this unknown environment.
