Safety, camping & good food

This Magpie trip is designed to be accessible to a wide range of participants—from total beginners to seasoned river trippers.

We’ve had participants as new to the world as 10 years old and as experienced as their late 70’s.

You don’t need previous whitewater experience and you can choose from a range of physical output levels, depending on if you opt to do some of the longer side hikes and inflatable kayaking and stand up paddle boarding—or if you prefer to spend more time in the guided rafts and relaxing at camp.

We want you to come off your Magpie trip invigorated and rejuvenated.

Our “thrive not just survive in the wild” motto comes from decades of experience in the remote wilderness. Your trip guides are incredibly experienced in backcountry camping and they will share their knowledge and systems with you. We encourage you to get hands-on in camp and learn from some of the best in the industry.

Here’s what to expect about activities and our wilderness travel style on the Magpie River in Quebec.
