Excursions Jacques-Cartier, le Club
Located at the top of the rapids of Tewkesbury, a course of 8.5 km on the river Jacques-Cartier. The excursion is made on a half-day and is offered as much to the novices as to the experimented.
This activity addresses a clientele more contemplative than sportive. It is the visit of the valley by the river. We recommend this activity for people in search of sweet adventures.
