What you'll do

Want to see Canada's beautiful Fall colours in the Gatineau Park? Depending on the day and people's fitness levels , we will lead you on a hiking expedition (in hiking boots or snowshoes in the Winter). We tailor the speed of all outings to the level and desires of our guests. You will see all of what the Gatineau Park has to offer, with its hundreds of kilometres of hiking and biking trails and its beautiful Meech Lake. We start at the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre and take specifically marked trails, always ending back at the Visitor Centre. This is a two-hour hike, with a stop for snacks (you are responsible to bring, with your own water). Come and join us as we provide you "insider access" to the Gatineau Park trail system, including stops at log cabins for a break and a snack, waterfalls, lookouts and old abandoned ruins, that we, as knowledgeable hike leaders love. As residents ourselves of the village of Old Chelsea, we'll also share with you our favourite cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby. Time permitting, you will be invited to join us for before the hike for a coffee at a nearby café or beer at nearby pub after. Come and hike like an Old Chelsea Local in our beautiful Gatineau Park and ask questions and hear the personal training and competition stories of Torpedo & Flash, one of the fitness fanatic and active couples of the village!

We have backgrounds in kinesiology, fitness training, exercise physiology, nutrition and we simply love healthy active living.

Where you'll be

You will experience the best hiking trails the Gatineau Park has to offer, where scenic views and forest trail experiences await.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should be fit and physically active. Love nature and enjoy brisk (moderate, not slow) hiking in the woods or trail running. If only a couple of people show and a slower pace is required, we will of…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

You must be physically fit before joining us on these activities. These hikes are not for sedentary people and more than calm, slow meanders. Super fun to be sure, but expect you may get a sweat going. If you are competitive athletes, it will be easy. Otherwise, please expect some effort.
