June 26, 2012 – If you’re the kind of person who likes to see the sights while getting lots of fresh air – not to mention a little exercise, KSF, Ecorécréo and Fitz ans Follwell Co. give you the means to do it.
Believe it or not, you don’t have to be an expert kayaker to have buckets of fun at Parc des Rapides, located in the south-western part of Montréal. Seasoned instructors are there to guide the uninitiated all along the way, or take the more adventurous among you river surfing. You can even learn how to paddleboard! KSF rents all the necessary equipment, and they offer a package of four water sports over two days.
You could almost say the warmer season doesn’t begin until you see the cheerful little four-wheeled vehicles roaming about the Old Port. From spring to fall, Ecorecreo on the Jacques-Cartier Pier rents them out to countless families, couples and groups of friends who pedal the little buggies about the port and into adjoining streets. These eco-friendly modes of transportation can carry up to six people and are one of the most enjoyable ways to go!
Fitz ans Follwell Co.
Taking advantage of Montréal’s numerous bike paths, Fitz ans Follwell Co. offers three delightful themed tours to discover the city on two wheels: Montréal City Highlights, the Montréal Neighbourhood Tour and the Montréal Sunday Urban Culture Experience.
