Summer Activities and packages


Canoe-camping and real Canadian wilderness

Come and discover our majestic rivers and the real Canadian wilderness, in full safety, in canoe-camping. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will be accompanied by an experienced guide with a lot of river knowledge. Our stays will charm you by their simplicity and life close to nature. Our packages are on demand and adaptable to everyone, going from 2 days to 25 days in complete autonomy.

Wild river canoe Canada

The overnight stays, during our outings, are under a tent and the food will be prepared on a wood fire. We ask each participant to take part in the daily tasks (raising the camp, seeking wood for the fire, meal preparation,…) during the expedition. For the amateurs of fishing the fish will be part of the game! If you are lucky, you will have the possibility to see a black bear in action or a moose crossing the river…

Wilderness camping, canoe trip

A certain physical condition is needed but a knowledge of canoeing is not necessary. Our guides will teach you the basis techniques in calm water and during your descent they will advise you in order to improve your wild water techniques. For your safety, you are in contact 24/24h by satellite telephone with the civilization.

Our river choices: Shipshaw, Manouane, Mistassibi, Ashuapmushuan, La du Chef, Métabechouane, Bazin, Capitachouane, Moisie or others, are done in accordance to the duration of your stay and the level of the participants. The water level of the rivers is variable according to the seasons and will be a selection criterion.
