    Parcours d’aventure : un défi à votre hauteur!

    Brave the wall, the tree top course and the zip line over the falls! Fall back in childhood: climb the trees, face the cliff and launch yourself over the water! The challenge is accessible to all. The Via Ferrata is done on a rock face. The activity can be similar to rock climbing at times, but most often takes place horizontally. The course of the Parc de la rivière Batiscan stands out for its breathtaking scenery along the river and its rapids. It guarantees a good dose of adrenaline in a totally safe environment.
