Embark on the grand tour

Combine Le Riverain and Les Rapides trails! The river at your side, take Les Rapides, once trodden by log drivers. Then, contemplate the valley in all its splendor by travelling Le Riverain. A loop of more than 20 km that will charm you with its diversity of sound and visual atmospheres. Halfway through, make a stop at Le Draveur Visitors Centre to taste our regional products!

Paddle the Rivière Malbaie

Don’t just contemplate the Malbaie River, get wet on an inflatable boat (guided) and take on the rapids downstream from Les Érables dam. Are you more the type to take it easy? Rent a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard and go up the dead water section upstream the dam to admire landscapes that you will not soon forget.

Brave the Acropole-des-Draveurs

With its vertical drop of 800 meters, the Acropole-des-Draveurs is a real physical challenge for which you need to prepare yourself. A spectacular reward awaits you at each of its three summits: breathtaking views of the Malbaie River, the valley and the glacial lakes. Inhale. Exhale. Contemplate. Discover the true meaning of the word vertiginous.
