Adventure courses

Between earth and sky

© AEQMore and more, outdoor enthusiasts are becoming hooked on treetop adventure courses, via ferratas and canyoning. Across Québec, in forests, gorges and escarpments, challenges big and small await you and your family or friends. You’ll encounter plenty of obstacles, true, but they sure won’t obstruct your fun!

Treetop aerial courses

© AEQMore than 20 sites offer beginners and seasoned adventurers alike a bird’s-eye view of the immense boreal forest. Most are located in the forest massif north of the St. Lawrence, and many are less than two hours from Montréal, Québec City or Gatineau.

In autumn, a visit to an adventure park nestled in a maple forest is a great opportunity to feast your eyes on the brilliant fall foliage. Some parks offer gorgeous views of the St. Lawrence River or the Saguenay Fjord. From up to 30 metres (almost 100 ft.) above the ground, you’ll soar along zip lines—the longest line is nearly 400 metres (1,300 ft.)!

Via ferratas and canyoning

© AEQ / Jardin des glaciersIf taking a stroll along cliff-side paths rather than gliding among the treetops is more your style, then you’ll want to try a via ferrata. Enjoy thrilling sensations and spectacular views while exploring the via ferratas of the Rivière Sainte-Anne canyon (Québec City) or the Palissades park in Saint-Siméon (Charlevoix).

© AEQ / Canyoning QuébecFor something a little more adventurous—but still very safe—canyoning attracts thrill-seekers who enjoy the water. Gaspésie, Charlevoix, Mont Sainte-Anne and the Mauricie boast turbulent waterfalls and cascades in pristine natural settings. Prepare for an adrenaline rush!
