A winter based adventure set in the spectacular Canadian wilderness


The First Nations peoples of Canada built stone landmarks known as Inuksuit to help them navigate across the vast wilderness areas.  Today thousands remain with Inuksuit firmly established as a cultural symbol for the Inuit people.  Recent reports point to a hitherto undiscovered Inukshuk in the Quebec region.  The race to follow the archaeological evidence begins?

The 52nd Parallel is a stunning winter-based Experiential Adventure set amongst the spectacular scenery of the Mauricie region in Quebec.  This will be an experience you remember for the rest of your life.

The story begins with an unexpected encounter in Montreal airport followed by a thrilling flight following the Saint Lawrence river to the beautiful city of Quebec City.

The adventure continues with an exhilarating mix of ice canoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, wilderness skills and ice driving.  This is all topped off with luxurious accommodation, wonderful hospitality and the most stunning locations in this enchanting corner of North America.
