FAQ

What equipment should I bring?

A generic list is available for each shipment type:

Canoe-camping list
Showshoes-yurt list

This list will also be sent to you as a reminder by your designated contact person 14 days before the start of the expedition.

Feel free to contact us on Facebook, by email or by phone for any specific questions or clarifications you may have!

What about rain?

Activities will take place rain or shine.
It will be the responsibility of Canadiana Escapes and the guides in charge of the expedition to adjust the schedule, the route and make any other necessary modifications for the smooth running of the activity.

Transportation?

Transportation is possible for your adventure. Please choose this option when you will sign up for a specific trip. 
The main meeting point is located near the Bonaventure station in Montreal. 

Meeting points on the south shore of Montreal are generally available for our winter trips. Also, meeting points on the or north shore of Montreal are generally available for our summer trips. 

Interior parking is available at our main meeting point. 

Please arrive 15 minutes before the indicated departure time.

Required experience?

No outdoor experience is required to enjoy your escape 🙂
However, normal physical fitness is a minimum to be able to enjoy the activity even better.

Drinking water?

The advice is to fill your bottles with water as soon as you leave.
However, we have a wonderful supply of drinking water in Quebec.

It is possible to take water directly from the lake (especially in the running water space and with a depth of at least 4 feet), or from the river, but this is not advisable due to the variable side effects compared to the different unidentified minerals contained in unfiltered water.

Tips?

A tip of $20 per person per day of travel is recommended, and is not included in the cost of the activity. It is a reward for the good humour, all the work accomplished and the contagious passion of our guides! 

However, this is a tip that is at your discretion!
