Enjoy walking through 30km of forested nature trails webbing across Terra Perma’s beautiful, protected 200 acre Forest Park. Breathe the pure mountain air and feel the presence of the trees, moss, lichens and wildlife that make the forest their home. With meditation sites and wilderness appreciation opportunities at every step, hiking is one of the best ways to re-connect with our deeper selves and the natural world around us.
Rent one of our canoes and go for a paddle in Terra Perma’s breath-taking and pristine Lac Besançon, where motorcraft are strictly forbidden and tranquility is absolutely guaranteed. Participate in Canada’s cultural heritage by engaging in this quintessentially Canadian activity. Canoes are an interesting and vital part of our history and are as pleasurable to use today as they once were important to transportation and exploration.
Take a refreshing dip in the pure mountain lake water of untouched Lac Besançon, Terra Perma’s glittering gem. Set in the rolling landscape like a jewel, this lake is a little piece of heaven. Perfectly undisturbed, the cool, soft waters will amaze you with their power to cleanse your mind and relax your body.
Hire a mountain-bike for the day or bring your own and explore Terra Perma’s Forest Park on designated mountain-biking trails. Experience the speed and excitement of cycling through this beautiful, rugged terrain! Bicycles are also one of the best ways to get around Terra Perma in the summer months. Wonderful biking paths also abound in Mont-Tremblant Park (30 mins).
The nearby Rouge River is famous for creating challenging rapids all season long, no matter the river level or flow. From mid-April to mid-September enjoy gushing along on huge waves in an unbeatable day of adventure along the Rouge River rapids. The Harrington Canyon, when the spring flood is at its peak and the Seven Sisters Section during the summer when levels are lower, each offer impressive continuous cascades of drops and ledges which will challenges and thrill any visitor. Calm pools at the bottom of every rapid are one of the river’s many advantages and make the Rouge a fun and safe place to raft.
Bring or rent a bicycle from Terra Perma and enjoy the incredible beauty of one of the Laurentian’s main bicycle arteries, “le Coridor Aérobique” which runs right through the picturesque nearby community of Arundel. Wonderful cycling paths also abound in Mont-Tremblant Park (30 mins).
See the beauty of the Laurentian Mountains from a different perspective: try a guided horse-back tour at the nearby Laurentian Equestrian Centre, Morin-Heights (25 mins) or at Mont-Tremblant Park (30 mins).
Test your skills or learn as a beginner to scale rocky verticals with certified guides at Mont-Tremblant Park (30 mins). This challenge is an exhilarating and memorable way to enjoy a summer day. No experience necessary.
