Mattawin River Adventure Centre

Get ready for a great adventure

For a great adventure during your next stay in the beautiful province of Quebec, come spend a few hours or a few days at the Mattawin River Adventure Centre in the Laurentides. This region is perfect for outdoor lovers who wish to live some thrills or to simply experience the joys of summer and winter in Quebec.

Rafting on Mattawin river

The Mattawin River Adventure Centre offers you a vast array of activities that you can do with all your family, with your friends or with the loved one. In the spring, the rivers rushing with water await you impatiently to make you live hours of pleasure on the rapids of the Mattawin River. Choose a rafting excursion that will suit your level of experience and that each member of your group will like. The most courageous ones will choose the Adventure rafting, while the less reckless will opt for the Family rafting. Children 6 years old and up can come and do the Family rafting excursion! An experienced guide will accompany you along your ride on the rushing rapids. A two-day rafting-camping package is also available for those who wish to fully experience nature. You can also try the bodysurfing, which consists in challenging the rapids on a body board, flippers on your feet. You will be one with the river! River kayaking and sea kayaking are also two water activities you can do, accompanied by an experienced guide. You can also go on a kayak-camping excursion to fully take in all the surrounding nature. In spring and summer, you can also initiate yourself to climbing, or come try a new outdoor climbing wall for a few hours or go on a climbing-camping excursion. Canyoning is a sport you must discover during your stay in Quebec. It consists in rappelling a falls or a canyon accompanied by a guide that makes sure everything is safe. Your adrenalin will be at its maximum during your ride down several falls that rush more than 10 metres below your feet! Everything is safe, and with your wetsuit, you are ready for a great challenge! In spring and summer, you can also take advantage of the other facilities on the site that allow you to do some swimming, hiking, mountain biking and stargazing.

Enjoy the lodging on site, summer and winter alike. Put up your tent on one of the many campground sites, enjoy the comfort of the Mattawin Inn or spend the night in a prospector tent, in a refuge or even in a real igloo!

Kayaking on Mattawin river

In winter, the Mattawin River Adventure Centre welcomes you so you can fully enjoy the winter nature in the Laurentides. Go on an expedition in the forest and the mountains of the Laurentides in mountain snowshoeing. You will thus be able to enjoy the peace and quietness of the surrounding nature, and maybe you will have the chance to see wildlife, who knows? You can also experience an extraordinary dogsleigh ride, an activity that is becoming more and more popular in Quebec. Let yourself be pulled by those beautiful and friendly Husky dogs that will make you like a few hours of pure pleasure. Extend your stay in the winter in one of the wood-heated refuges, in a prospector tent or in a typical northern Quebec igloo.

For a genuine experience with Quebec nature, dare take up the challenge of the Mattawin River Adventure Centre in the Laurentides, summer and winter alike!
