Come in the Matapedia Valley and find the perfect environment for numerous activities.


Lakes, rivers and woods, what else would you need to experience one or several activities that are available from the lodge. In partnership with a local company that specializes in these types of activities we offer you many packages including activities, lodging and meals at the lodge.

We have several outdoor packages that are safe for family and children over 5 years.

A minimum of 4 people is required before departure whatever the activity is.

It is possible to join a group if you are less than four people or alone.

The (Matapedia) package

River: Matapédia


This little 25 km package allows you to paddle on the river, enjoying nature’s beauty, and to relax in an enchanting environment.

You will float down the magnificent Matapédia River from its confluence with the Causapscal river starting at the (Les Fourches) salmon pool until you reach the Routhierville covered bridge.

At lunch times while taking a break, the guide will describe the life we find on the river either under the water or on land in many places where you will contemplate the beauty of the river and its wildlife. You will also discover the river through many different landscapes and salmon pools where anglers try their luck on the king of the river.

Upon your arrival at the Routhierville Bridge all you will need to do is go to the lodge and relax on the porch or in the spa enjoying a nice cocktail.
