River excursion in a canoe or in a kayak with return on a bicycle.

Round trip: approx. 3 hours
River section approx. 2 hours


À L’ABORDAGE offers a 7km boat trip on the Rivière du Nord in a canoe, a single or a double kayak, departing from Val-David and arriving at Lac Raymond in Val-Morin. Considered a quiet stretch of whitewater, the course meanders gently downstream and is safe for beginners, nature lovers and the whole family. Upon arrival at Lac Raymond, the À L’ABORDAGE team awaits you to exchange your boat for a bicycle and then you cycle back along the P’tit Train du Nord bike path. The return trail follows a flat, easily accessible bike path travelling through 4km of forest.
