Package canoe, kayak, bike, Val-David © À l'abordage


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.

  • To meet the needs of children accompanying you, we have kids bikes, bike trailers or tandem bike adapters.
  • A shuttle bus service is also available for those who do not wish to return by bicycle.
  • The duration of the trip is approximately 3 hours – 2 hours on the river [7km] and up to 1 hour on bicycle [4km].
