If you’re in the mood for a nice road trip out of Montreal while the weather is toasty, Bonaventure River in the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec has some seriously unbelievably clear water.

Tourism Gaspésie says Bonaventure River has “some of the clearest water in the world” and is the perfect activity for people looking to hop on a kayak, canoe, raft, or paddleboard and enjoy the great Quebec outdoors.

The tourist spot, called Cime Aventures, is about 9 hours (854 kilometres) off the island of Montreal.

Once you’re there, the 20-kilometre river trek, which takes about four to five hours, can be done without a guide, even for beginner canoers and kayakers.

Prices are $75.99 for adults, $67 for students, and $37 for children. Bookings are open from now until the end of September.

For clear water adventurists, the site also has a campground, restaurant, hotel, and spa for people looking to tackle the river over a few days.

Needless to say, the Cime Aventures might be something to add to your Quebec summer weather bucket list.
