New outdoor 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!

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 overnight stay.

Sleep, dream 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

Parc 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!
