Discover the soft sandy beaches of the Rouge River on our non-guided kayak, paddleboard and Canoeing Mont Tremblant trips. There are several great swimming spots (most beaches are public land), and you can bring your lunch and have a picnic on the shore of the river. The Rouge river is CALM and most parts are very shallow. Our 24 km (full day), 12 km (half day) or 6km (2hr) section of river is in a rural setting, so expect to see some farms and cottages.
Includes a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard (SUP) rental and up river transport. Our staff will provide you with the equipment, help you launch and give you some basic instructions.
Our non-guided kayak, paddleboard and Canoeing Mont Tremblant is suitable for beginners. Kayaks are easier to control and more stable than canoes. Paddleboards are more difficult and require good balance.
Helpful hint! If you choose to canoe, it’s important to understand that canoes are designed for 2 people and have only 2 seats. It is possible to put 3 if one is a child who will sit on the floor, but we do not recommend putting 4 in a canoe. Children under 10 years old probably won’t want to paddle the whole time, so they should go in a canoe with an adult or ride in a kayak that could be towed. The best configuration puts at least 1 adult per canoe, no more than 2 adults or 2 adults + 2 small children in a canoe (1 adult with 3 children won’t work in 1 canoe). Extra participants can take a kayak or paddleboard.
12 km – You will leave your car at the starting point of our rental centre. A shuttle will take you to the water and you will descend the river back to your car.
6 km or 24 km – You will leave in your boat from our rental centre. Our shuttle will pick you up at the exit of the water to bring you back to your car.
