  • Description


    I own a small eco-adventure travel business based in rural Quebec Canada 90 minutes from Ottawa. We have a small hostel and campground on a beautiful peninsula jutting into the Ottawa River. We offer Hostel accommodations, camping, meals, canoeing, kayaking SUP and whitewater rafting. We are looking for some workawayers to lend a hand at our basecamp in exchange for showing them a TRULY CANADIANA experience.

    Workawayers will live in platform tents, have food and kitchen provided and provide a helping hand where necessary around the hostel/campground/basecamp and will have access to recreational activities during off hours such as whitewater rafting, canoeing, SUP, kayaking, cycling etc.

    We are excited to provide you with an exceptional, fun and adventurous experience during your stay with us in Canada!

    We live in a part of western Quebec, Canada, where the timber industry dominated our regional economy for over 100 years. With the demise of the timber industry the adventure tourism industry has risen like a Phoenix allowing people to come and explore our many lakes, rivers and wide open spaces. Workawayers will mix with people from our local community as well as guests from around the world.
