Three unique concepts: relaxation guaranteed

Along the Batiscan River, our shelters (lodging, cabins) have everything to please both lovers and families in search of tranquility and great outdoors experiences. The Pod will surprise you with its fun rounded shape and with its beautiful brightness. Le Perché (the Perched), high up, offers upstairs beds on mezzanines accessible by ladders. L'Islandais (The Icelandic), partially buried underground, has intimate access to large rocks on the shore. Without water or electricity, but comfortable and well equipped, a stay in one of our shelters is always a good pretext for laziness... or taking a walk in the forest.

Rental offered all year round.

From 89$ plus tax per night (daily access not included)

Via ferrata river Batiscan

Brave the rock wall, the tree climbing adventure and the zipline over the waterfalls !

Fall back into childhood : climb trees, face the rock wall, jump into the void above water. Anyone can enjoy this challenge. The Via Ferrata takes place on a rock wall. The activity may look like rock climbing, but instead of climbing you are most of the time moving horizontally. The Via Ferrata Route is distinguished by its breathtaking landscapes along the river and its white rapids.

Adrenaline rush guaranteed in a completely secure environment.

Our experienced outdoor guides accompany you on the whole adventure (full or partial) :

  • grand zipline,
  • tree-climbing adventure,
  • Via Ferrata at night,
  • tree-climbing adventure for kids, etc.
