• Covid-19 Intervention plan

The Covid-19 pandemic is a historic event that requires some methods of welcoming different than we are used to do for over 20 years. In order to welcome you again and offer you a safe environment, we have built, in collaboration with our employees and our partners, an intervention plan putting together a series of measures aimed at preventing and controlling the risks of Covid infection. These measures comply with Public Health and will be rigorously applied by the company.

Cancellation policy:

Fjord en Kayak has relaxed its cancellation policy.

Excursion of 1 day or less: 100% of the amount is required at the time of booking. If due to Covid-19 it is impossible for you or for us to maintain the activity, this will result in a full refund of the activity.

Excursions from 1 to 4 days: 50% of the amount of the trip will be required at the time of booking. The rest of the amount will be required on the day of departure. If due to Covid-19 it is impossible for you or for us to maintain the activity, this will result in a full refund of the activity.

Day 1: Departure from l’Anse-Saint-Jean. We slowly paddle along the shores to gaze at those million-year-old rocks. We pass by the islands and the Baie Sainte-Marguerite delta. Overnight stay at l’Anse à la Barge cottage.

Day 2: Go, go, little boat…. The sea is calling us for dinner at l’Anse Sainte-Étienne. At first glance, you’ll be seduced by its white sand beaches. And when we are out on the water, we may just have to hold our paddles for a moment, and stop to admire a distant school of belugas or minke whales. We stay overnight at the Pointe à Passe-Pierre camp site.

Day 3 : What greater magic than the site where the fjord meets the St-Lawrence estuary ? This is an unforgettable moment, with the two waters intermingling and the lapping waves rocking our sea kayaks. We relax and have fun in Tadoussac and Baie-Sainte-Catherine, returning to L’Anse-Saint-Jean by boat.
