A yoga class out in nature

Enjoy an experience of total well-being at an outdoor yoga workshop, surrounded by lush vegetation on the shores of the wonderful Rivière du Loup. This moment of pure calm is open to beginners as well as more experienced participants and will let you be at one with nature. Learn breathing techniques, exercises to improve muscle tone and new dynamic poses all while taking in the magnificent landscape around you.

A massage by the water

Take advantage of a marvellous moment of relaxation and let yourself be soothed by the soft waves and communicative energy of the Rivière du Loup with a massage by the water, a concept unique to Quebec. Experienced massage therapists will accompany you throughout your journey on this “sea” of tranquillity so you can experience total body and mind relaxation in an unbeatable natural environment.

A horseback ride through the forest

Discover Le Baluchon's natural beauty on a horseback ride. This activity begins with a lesson on the safety basics of the sport, then moves on to a ride through the heart of the lush fairytale landscapes of this part of Le Baluchon's grounds alongside a professional guide. End the day right and treat yourself to delicious local cuisine at l'Éco-café Au bout du monde for an experience that will leave you with memories worth savouring!
