In a kayak, take in the immensity of the territory where each paddle stroke affords a new perspective. Beneath your feet is one of the largest meteorite impact craters visible on Earth. The crater became a huge reservoir following the construction of the Daniel-Johnson dam and is now referred to as the Eye of Quebec. And if you look in the distance, you will see the colossal Uapishka (Groulx) mountain range, one of the largest and highest in Quebec.
As part of a group, as a couple, on your own or with family, treat yourself to an all-inclusive guided kayak excursion and let yourself be swept away by the vastness of the Manicouagan backcountry.
