Cani-kart at Aventure Inukshuk
This activity has been offered for the past two years, from late August to early November depending on the weather, by the local company Aventure Inukshuk. Located very close to the Duchesnay Tourist Station, the Cani-Kart allows you to take a ride in a wheeled car (instead of a sled) with a guide, where dogs are harnessed to make you discover the trails and fully enjoy color changes.
It is certainly a unique and very pleasant experience! We see that the dogs are very happy to walk to the point that when leaving and arriving, the barking will be much louder! After your walk, you will have the pleasure of seeing and even stroking the little new puppies. What better way to end such an adventure!
