• 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.

What you need to know:

  • Important measures have been put in place to protect the health and safety of our visiters. They are rigorously applied by the company.

  • Do not show up if you experience any of the following symptoms: cough, fever, difficulty breathing OR if you have been in contact with an infected person in the past 14 days.

Sea kayak basics and safety training 

Departure from l’Anse-Saint-Jean 

We navigate around l’îlet Saint-Jean, nesting grounds of the amusing spotted sandpiper. Then we continue on through the fjord and its many coves. And here the splendor of the fjord opens up before us with a glorious view of the majestic Capes Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité. This enchanting vision will leave you with a lasting impression of this magnificent coastline. 

On the summer hotter days, we take a swim at L’Anse de Tabatière. So bring along your bathing suit! During your outing, you may catch sight of a seal, because the seals love to follow kayaks.

* The itinerary may vary, depending on the tide and the wind
