Schedule of the day

When you arrive to the base camp, we ask you to complete the payment and to fill-up a questionnaire.

Whitewater Training

In order for you to have the best experience you can have, our experienced guides will give you basic whitewater advices and techniques. They will also explain the schedule of the activity with more details.

Let's start having fun

Boat are leaving on the river for the first ride! At any moment during the ride, your guide will explain you the steps and rules to follows and may tell you numerous stories about the Rouge River, may they be real, or part of a story telling facts. Let the fun begin!


An healthy lunch will be served to you in between the 2 rides. For the Canyon section, the lunch is served outside, on the shore of the take out. For the Seven Sisters section, the lunch is served at the base campl.

The swimming course

Because the first ride is usually the moment you adapt to the river, we called the second ride, the “Swimming Course”! This is the opportunity to show up all the knowledge you now have, and speak with the river fishes as you go play in the rapids.

Day End

After almost 5 hours or water plays, time has come for heading back to the base camp! You will then enjoy our facilities (pool, whirlpool, volley-ball ground, bathroom and showers) and have a beer on the terrace, the time we ask you to come in for the video! Our delicious BBQ diner will be served, closing this unforgetteable day.

Context: me adult male 49, son 15 years old. Classic rafting, full day.
Thanks to all the team, staff, crews and guides at propulsion Rafting. my son and I had a blast. Centre: clean, well equipped for all needs and additional bits like wet suits, shoes, anything needed to make it safe and comfortable – and nice morning coffee. Easily accessible by road. Staff at the centre are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient (no time lost !). Guide was very friendly, experienced and professional. could handle the boat, the rapids and the guest tourists :). River: Rafting Classic, 8 person boat, two x 2hrs each trip (one in morning one in afternoon.Scenery and river are very nice. We came in August so river is at lowest (and warmest) of the season but speed / volume less than early spring season (35). But we still had great twists and turns and rapids to deal with and lots of action IN the water! which is why we went!. If you are looking for more challenging extreme sports sensations and tough water conditions, the river is worth the try, but come earlier in season and check the level of water on line before booking. We will come back early July next year for bigger swells. Also, if you can come with a crew of friends that are basically the same level/ experience, and looking for same adrenaline buzz, share the same vision of the sport, it will be better for everyone. The guide and crew can then really take you places! River is same for everyone, but you can take in on and experience it in many different ways – so depending on the people in the boat, you can take on swells in a more adventurous way or more family friendly way (the guides to their credit are very attentive to the level and wishes of the clients in boat). We did a full day and were happy to sit back in the early evening around the pool and jacuuzzi and lounge for a few beers, good barbecue and meet the staff and other participants. Definitely recommend and will come back for more. Recommendation: I would suggest the guide spend more time at beginning explaining the security requirements and that before we hit the rapids all visitors get a real taste of the water by doing capsizing exercises and how to get in out of boat from the water, how to take care of yourself once you fall in the water etc. it will get everyone in right mood and also teach the basics and help everyone have a more enjoyable outting. Thanks again – John & Scott
