Whether summer of winter, the activities offered by the Abitibi-Temiscamingue territory are excitement-packed. Kayak, canoe, snowmobile, dogsled or Nordic skiing, all come together to reveal breath-taking vistas, the beauty of the wildlife and the wealth of the Native culture. Many agencies can help vacationers to make their journey plentiful of emotions.
- Abitiwinni (Web Site: www.abitibiwini.com ) offers packages with Algonquian guides, for 200-km long excursion on the Harricana River. Guests can taste typical native food and sleep in a tradition tepee.
- Algonquin Canoe Company – www.algonquincanoe.com offers various canoe and kayak packages for excursions of a few hours or days with an experienced Algonquian guide.
- Wawate – www.aubergeorpailleir.com - offers Nordic skiing in winter, as well as snowshoeing, dogsled and winter fishing. In summer, tourists can experience kayak or on foot excursions.
Anyway, those looking for a “rough” expedition, together with the rustic side of a remote camp, will find everything for their taste, just as those who like to fish without being in a rush and then return to the comfort of a cottage or inn.
