Sea kayaking near Île d'Orléans
activities off the beaten path
Quebec is a place full of outdoor
activities that take you off the beaten path. Discover the
activities region by region and plan your next vacation! Whether
you’d like to go climbing or hiking, try out motorized sports or
something on wheels, or simply pick a nature-watching activity,
you’ll find just the thing to suit your tastes. Choose geocaching,
a via ferrata trek, fatbiking or any other sport that would fit
well into your family vacation, romantic getaway or trip with
friends. If you thrive on the latest sports – and if you’re a dog
lover to boot – how about trying cani-kart? This wheeled sport
calls on the special talents of huskies and is the summertime
counterpart to dogsledding. There’s also canicross, which is a
hiking activity you do with your four-legged friend!
Canyoning with Eskamer
Cool down with
refreshing ideas for summer
Would you rather do something on the
water? There are many original options to choose from! Ever heard
of whitewater riverboarding? This is a sport that lets you tackle
the river equipped with only a board and a pair of fins. You could
also try kitesurfing for a thrilling skim on the surface of the
water guided by the power of the wind. Here are two examples of businesses who are eager to show you just how
much fun you can have on the water.
Located on Île d’Orléans near Québec
City, Quatre Natures specializes in invigorating sea kayaking
expeditions, including trips at dusk and even under starry skies.
If you prefer a canoe-and-camping expedition, set out to discover
the breathtaking landscapes of the Jacques-Cartier Valley along
the river of the same name, characterized by sections of rapids and calmer
waters. And for an all-out expedition, go for the package on the
French River that will take you all the way to Ontario.
Eskamer Aventure, a company located in
Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, deals in canyoning and sea kayaking packages
and offers three types of expeditions: a one-day trip in the
Beaulieu Canyon, a half-day trip in the Ruisseau-Castor Canyon or
a half-day trip in the Sauteux Canyon. There are also new features
that are worth a detour: a 330-metre zipline that stretches over the valley and
the free-fall jump with QuickJump. After your trip, hit the pool
on the spectacular roof terrace. There is also a treetop cottage
available for those who would like an unusual place for an
Camping at Parc régional du Massif du Sud
and enjoy life in a regional park!
Regional parks are fantastic places
for outdoor enthusiasts. Couples, families, solo travellers and
groups of friends will be thrilled about all the activities
available. Great places for short visits, the regional parks also
let you stay for several days so you can really get to know the
park, take your time and explore.
Choose a visit to the Parc
régional du Massif du Sud in Chaudière-Appalaches. There you’ll find charming
campsites as well as the new pods, which are high-end
ready-to-camp lodgings. You could even reserve one of the three
Mega Pods that can accommodate up to six people, or one of the two
Mini Pods designed specifically for couples or small families.
Hiking up Mont-Ham
régional du Mont-Ham, in the
Eastern Townships, is a wonderful place to start a hike up to the
majestic Mont-Ham that towers over the region and stands 713 metres
tall. The stunning 360-degree view of three regions is your reward
for the climb. Campers can then settle onto their rustic
campsites, suitable for small families or four adults, or one of
the prospector tents that can accommodate 2 to 8 people or pitch
their own tent at their designated campsite. Authentic nature!
