  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can enjoy the weekend and discover the gaspesian coast while we take over. Likewise on less busy days, you can enjoy your free times and go to the beach, swim in the rivers or visits the surroundings (Exploramer museum, Gaspesie national park, etc.)

    Having your own vehicle is better if you want to be independent.

    --

    Vous pourrez profiter des week-ends pour découvrir la côte gaspésienne pendant que nous prenons le relais. De même, lors des journées moins occupées, vous pourrez profiter de vos temps libres pour aller à la plage, vous baigner dans les rivières ou visiter les alentours (musée Exploramer, Parc de la Gaspésie, etc.)

    Un véhicule est préférable si vous voulez être autonomes.
