Designed for parents wishing to share the rafting experience with their children or for adults looking for a less challenging activity, this program was created for a clientele of 6 years and up. You will navigate on calm waters and in small rapids. This new program is ideal to live a slow-paced adventure as well as to discover the Quebec riverbanks and forest wilderness. 

The kayarafts are inflatable boats, in one or two seater. Throughout the activity, you will be accompanied by a kayaker guide that will teach you the techniques of rafting. You will experience the maneuverability of the kayak with the stability of the raft. Emotions and thrills guaranteed 

The mission of this adventure is to go down the Dunbar River in the St. Mauricie reserve using ropes and to come back by rock climbing its sides. A warm-up walk of 1 km will take our adventurers to one of the most popular sites of the St. Mauricie reserve. During their descent, they will face various falls and canyons up to 10 meters, and go down a small canyon to reach their goal. After 2 km of descent, they will hike back to the starting point. 

Hydrospeed or swimming in wild water is a gliding sport consisting of swimming down the river with fins and a protective floater. Strongly built, this kick-board is specially designed for the bodysurfing adept wanting for a safe and easy to maneuver apparatus. Your kayaker guide will teach you the following techniques: fairy, swivel, esquimo roll as well as surf. You will swim down the river in a group of 5 hydroluge racers.
