A little outing on our most beautiful waterways

In the middle of a lake or during a river descent, we have the impression that time is standing still. Whether you’re a canoe, kayak, rabaska canoe, or stand-up paddleboard enthusiast, navigating the most beautiful waterways of Québec will free your mind while keeping you in exemplary shape. The freshness of the water and the more clement weather will be to your advantage and will make you forget that fall is fast approaching.

Outwit the fish like at the beginning of season

Fishing enthusiasts recognize that even if fish tend to bite a little more at the beginning of season, it’s still possible to snag some great catches right until the end of summer. Whether during a fishing trip with cabin accommodations or a simple day of fishing on our bountiful lakes, why not try your luck and see what you can rustle up. Who knows, some beautiful specimens could provide the same thrills as you got at the beginning of summer!

Strolling in the forest or boldly setting off for an adventure in the great outdoors

Depending on how much energy you have or the kilos that you may have been put on during the holidays, you can opt for a peaceful outing on our hiking trails or strive mightily to reach the highest peaks. The cooler weather during the transition from summer to fall is ideal for this kind of activity. As a bonus, you’ll be among the first to see the magnificent display of colours when the forest is transformed for fall. 

Extending your camping season

Some camping this fall? Why not! Even if the season of colours is slowly but surely creeping in, the camping season isn’t over yet. A number of our destinations continue their activities until mid-October. This is your chance for some peace and quiet while enjoying a completely different natural world. If you wish to sleep under the stars until the very last moment, see the list of our destinations offering prime campsites to end the season in style.
