About 70 km (40 miles) paddling down the river, it can be extended or reduced as desired

Three days of canoeing, in the forest, on the trails of the American Indians offers true wilderness scenery. In the evening, when you camp near the river, you may see moose, bears, hear wolves howl, or see the Northern Lights.

DAY 1
CHOICE OF ARRIVING, AFTER YOUR EVENING MEAL, obtainable in a village nearby; OR in the late afternoon and (1) enjoying the hiking trails and seeing our park of wolves, and, (2) with a reservation, DINING AT OUR BASE, where we offer a self service meal ($). Sleep in one of our chalets (the rooms are for two, three or four people, depending on availability and the nature of the groups).

DAY 2
After breakfast (included)  we check the canoe and leave our base camp to take you to the embarkation point, for a 3 day expedition down the Mistassini River, in the wilderness, in the heart of the boreal forest. Canoeing allows you to trace the history of the "discoverers of Canada". Each day, late in the afternoon, you will be able to set up camp for the night, prepare a fire and food, and bring water from the river, as in the days of the trappers.

DAY 3
The second day of canoeing down the river, and camping in a tent near to the river
