 Your day will end with a dinner prepared by a renowned herbalist chef.

On the third day, you will explore the banks of the Kempt River in a canoe. After lunch, your guides will take you on a hike around the island. Then, explore the village of Matakan.

  • Day 4 – Return by seaplane and relaxing at Baluchon Eco Resort

After a final morning among the Atikamekw community, you will head back south in a seaplane.
