Rafting is one of the top water sports activities in the Quebec region due to a huge number of calm and stormy waterways. Whether you want to have a peaceful family weekend or an adrenaline ride with your friends, you can find it in Quebec.
The season starts in late April when the snow melts and fills rivers with volume and finishes in late October. The spring ride can be the most thrilling, but autumn is less crowded and you can enjoy the breathtaking Indian summer. During the summer the quality of the trip mostly depends on rainfall and water level of rivers.
The biggest advantage of rafting in Quebec is that suitable spots can be found really close to main cities, like Lachine Rapids. Other famous rafting destinations are Rouge River, Malbaie River, Red River, or rivers near Lac-Saint-Jean.
