Fun and adventure for one and all
Whether you’re traveling with your grandparent or your youngest, whether you like big challenges or short hikes, the regions of Authentic Quebec are unique in offering a host of outdoor activities that will leave no one disappointed.
Whether water-, land- or air-based, the activities offered in Authentic Quebec come in all forms but have a common goal: to allow visitors to appreciate the natural world surrounding them.
Water represents the Mauricie and Lanaudière regions’ predominant element. Take a canoe or stand-up paddle board (SUP) and explore the patchwork of lakes that dot these regions. When night falls, land your canoe on a sandy beach and pitch your tent under a starry sky. If it’s a hot summer’s day, don’t hesitate to cool off in the water, whether for a few hours of swimming or a day-long rafting trip.
Or you might want to leave the lake far below you as you take a seaplane ride over this vast forested expanse. The massive scale of nature is best admired from above, through the window of this curious aircraft, still frequently used by hunters and fishers to reach remote areas.
