Team activities

Adventures that bring us closer together

Who says team activities have to take place within four walls? Going out to play is a chance to get away from it all, to get to know your colleagues, to get together... in short, to enjoy an inspiring experience outside the office. Sépaq destinations offer a host of options, whether you're looking for a one-day team-building activity or the dream location for your next secluded strategic meeting. Fresh air and raucous laughter guaranteed.

Paddling in unison

There's no shortage of water-based activities in our national parks. For a peaceful moment with colleagues, opt for an original outing to the sound of lapping water. Whether you choose a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard, you can enjoy nature in all its forms. The choice is yours!

A popular watercraft for groups? The rabaska, a large birchbark canoe of Algonquin origin that can accommodate up to ten people. Nine of our destinations, including Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville and Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier, offer this type of excursion for colleagues. You'll find that there's nothing more motivating than rowing together and marvelling at the beauty of the scenery.

Sharing thrills and chills

For more adventurous teams, aerial adventures are just the ticket. After all, sharing a little collective scare brings you closer together! Take to the skies and discover exceptional territories - and your colleagues - from a whole new angle.

For a few hours, swap your computer screen for the rock faces and breathtaking views of our via ferrata circuits. Safe mountainside circuits await you! Between cables, beams, footbridges, and catwalks, team-building has never been easier. Enjoy this unique experience at Parc national du Mont-Tremblant, Parc de la Chute-MontmorencyParc national des Grands-Jardins or Parc national du Fjord-du-Saguenay.

For a fun-filled aerial excursion in the heart of the forest, a circuit at Arbraska Duchesnay is the obvious choice. This team-building activity combines fun and sporting challenges in the treetops, all adapted to different levels. A mere 30 minutes from Québec City, Station touristique Duchesnay offers the sort of top-of-the-line excursion that your organization so richly deserves.

Would you like to encourage your colleagues to leap into the void on a zipline? The 300-metre-long Parc de la Chute-Montmorency zipline is the perfect way to give your team a shot of adrenalin. And what about the historical re-enactment, geocaching challenge, and photo rally for groups? A super special day (document in French only) is within your grasp. You can even combine business with pleasure by taking advantage of one of our meeting rooms before your adventure on site.

Playing in the snow

Snowboarding can quickly become synonymous with team winter fun. Sépaq destinations abound with trails to explore on cross-country skis, snowshoes, and fatbikes. A number of parks even offer equipment rental, ideal for a winter sport initiation. Then, when you're all tuckered out, you can warm up with a hot drink and recount the highlights – and tumbles – of the day.

Since the outdoors and brainstorming go hand in hand, why not rent one of our spaces for a professional meeting off the beaten track? Parc national du Mont-Saint-Bruno, Parc national du Mont-TremblantCamp Mercier and many other destinations even offer halls with projectors.

Recharging your batteries at a secluded strategic meeting

Occasionally, it takes more than a day to get away from it all. A secluded strategic meeting is time well invested to connect with nature and reconnect with colleagues. It's a time to reward the troops, plan the year's projects and, together, get motivated and enjoy a change of scenery.

A country-style hotel, group lodges, and 14 modern cabins on the shores of Lac Saint-Joseph... the accommodations at Station touristique Duchesnay are impressive to say the least. Summer (document in French only) and winter (document in French only) alike, team-building activities are the order of the day at this resort. Try your hand at archery, saw wood in a fun event, take a torchlight hike, relax around a fire, or take part in a friendly battle inspired by La guerre des tuques. Team spirit is guaranteed.
