We can accommodate school or organized groups at the Grande Île base camp (Mingan archipelago) and up to 18 people on a trip down the Magpie River.
We can organize a trip suitable for families with young children or teenagers. Our base camp in the Mingan archipelago adapts particularly well to this formula.
In 2022, 10 young people from Saint-Luc secondary school in Montreal rafted down the Magpie River. Guided by Noryak and accompanied by Roy Dupuis as well as a team of filmmakers, the stay allowed young people from urban environments to discover this majestic territory and led to the production of the documentary Après la Romaine.
Every year, organized groups of youth and adults from the Innu community of Ekuanitshit (Mingan) come to stay at our base camp on the Grande Île to connect with the territory and spend time on the Uinipeikut. In the past, we have also organized trips down the Magpie River (Muteshekau Shipu) with members of the community.
In June 2022, a group of friends set themselves a challenge: a kayak-camping expedition on the Lower North Shore. The objective was to leave from the end of the 138 road, in Kegaska, to go by sea-kayak to the Innu community of La Romaine (Unamen-Shipu), 50 kilometers further east.
This area proved to be one of the most difficult to navigate – rocky shores exposed to swell and sometimes impossible to land ashore. After a first day of good weather, strong winds and rain for several days then prevented the group from arriving at their destination. Fortunately, thanks to local contacts, we were able to travel the rest of the way by boat to stay near the community of La Romaine. On site, a cultural lobster fishing activity was then organized by an Innu guide. In addition to the challenges, the discovery of a wild territory and cultural encounters also marked this trip.
In 2020, we guided two families with sporty teenagers on a sea kayaking expedition in the Mingan Archipelago. Starting from the mouth of the Romaine River, we loaded our kayaks and spent two nights wild camping on one of the islands in Romaine Bay, thanks to special permission from Parks Canada. We then left the coast to spend two more nights on Quarry Island and see some of the most special monoliths of the archipelago. One of the highlights of this trip was undoubtedly the long crossing of the Mingan channel in the thick fog, staying on course using the compass while being surprised by marine mammals several times along the way.
