Explore this water maze just outside Montreal before the summer is over

Aug 24 2021, 2:36 pm

COVID-19 restrictions gave way to the rise of the staycation. Canadians who were desperate to get on a plane and cross international waters were instead forced to explore their own backyards.

But many of them were pleasantly surprised at what they found. Along with urban exploration came deep dives into Canada’s incredible natural wonderland, which often turns skeptics into full-blown tree-huggers.

So, if you’re looking for an activity on the outdoorsy side, just outside Montreal, the grounds at Éco-Odyssée have plenty to offer. There’s archery, glamping, hiking, and a one-of-a-kind water maze.

The Wanderer is Éco-Odyssée’s unique labyrinth that has been in use since 2008. Participants are given an adventure map and their choice of paddleboat, paddleboard, or canoe.

What follows is a 2-hour adventure through the wild country of Wakefield, Quebec. Don’t be surprised if you run into a beaver or white-tailed deer as the park shares its grounds with the local habitat of dozens of creatures.

Once the water freezes during the winter months, the water maze becomes an ice labyrinth that you explore on skates.
