*** Activity exclusively reserved for Université Laval students***

This summer, discover a new water activity: the Rabaska canoe. This very stable boat can transport up to 20 adults and their luggage and can be up to 10 meters long. The origin of the Rabaska canoe can be traced to the Algonquins first nation. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it was used by the French and British explorers to reach the inside of North America through its waterways. Nowadays, it is popular with outdoor enthusiasts because of its capacity and stability.

The activity we offer is a one hour and a half guided tour on a Rabaska canoe on the magnificent Jacques-Cartier River in the park of the same name. Note that in order to make the canoe move, all participants must paddle!
