Hot summer days: perfect for water activities

It’s also the perfect opportunity to discover the majestic St. Lawrence River and Saguenay fjords: a sea kayak or zodiac excursion will let you get up close to these unique ecosystems, which offer spectacular scenery and the chance to watch marine wildlife.

Need a bit more adrenaline? A family rafting excursion, canyoning or a day of kitesurfing will revitalize the more daring.

On cooler days, experience the unique charm of our tourist regions while enjoying diverse pathstreks and outdoor activities.

Hiking is still the most popular outdoor activity when we go on vacation, and with good reason! Our networks of paths, meticulously maintained, provide intimate access to Quebec’s vast natural spaces and expansive landscape. However, there are a thousand ways to discover Quebec’s wilderness: mountain biking is becoming more and more popular among families and adrenaline seekers. Think you’re not in good enough shape?

Does it use high-quality equipment? Does it have accident insurance? Does the company hire local, specialized and qualified guides, who will help you experience the region through the stories that forged it? Is the company respectful of the environment?
