SHARE THIS ADVENTURE:

Come and experience the most popular whitewater rafting river in Quebec, the Rouge River. Considered as one of the best whitewater rafting excursions in America, the Rouge River offers first class III+ rapids. Half and full day trips are available daily throughout the summer.

For the more adventurous you can try a trip down the river in the smaller 13' raft. You must have some rafting experience on the Rouge River to do this tour. Being physically fit is also a prerequisite. Since small boats are extremely responsive, risks of capsizing are high and frequent. However, they allow quick and easy movement in order to tackle all waves.

For families with younger children, come for a special family outing and ride down one of the tamer sections of the Rouge River. This 'softer' package is ideal if you want to swim or just relax. You will discover magnificent sandy beaches and safely ride down Class 3 rapids.

Situated on the river shore, the rafting center offers an array of white water activities, including a complete BBQ meal, a hot tub, interior showers, a swimming pool, a natural beach sun deck and all.  

Two day packages are also available. The guides offer a variety of activities: rafting, kayaking and resort activities. The two day package include your choice of activities, mid-day snack and complete BBQ dinner on Day 1 and complete breakfast and mid snack on Day 2, one night of camping with campfire and access to the centre's facilities.
