The first day, we will meet in Montreal, for the bus ride to Air Eau Bois Camp where we’ll spend our first night. As we get acquainted, we will learn about the canoeing techniques that will help us on our expedition on Poisson Blanc Reservoir. We will familiarize ourselves with our large voyager canoes capable of carrying up to ten paddlers. During the evening, we’ll take time to prepare our baggage and enjoy the warm surroundings of the Gîte and engage in discussions.
The next day, after breakfast, we’ll pack our foodstuff and get on our way. Once the voyager canoes are loaded, we’ll be off for a 3-day and 2-night expedition to discover the beautiful wilderness of the Outaouais Region. Paddling on the Poisson Blanc Reservoir, we will see the tall white pines, and with a little bit of luck, we’ll come across many species of birds and small mammals. Hence, together, we will live the nomadic life, travelling over water with our baggage. At night, we will set up camp and prepare the evening meal. After a full day of paddling, it will be relaxation time around the campfire, with a marshmallow roast and stories galore.
