Is there anything more pleasant than sitting around a fire, roasting marshmallows, and camping in the wilderness? How about waking up for an early-morning hike and catching the most awe-inspiring sunrise?
For athletic types who are passionate about making the most of all that Mother Nature provides, outdoor adventures aren't just about unforgettable memories, absolute thrills, and physical exertion; investing in top-notch equipment to make sure you're safe along the way is a definite priority, too.
And there's no better place to check out- and get great deals- on all the latest in the realm of outdoor gear than the 2019 Outdoor Adventure Show. March 16 - 17, Quebec’s largest showcase of outdoor gear and adventure travel experiences will be welcoming attendees at Palais des Congrès.
Over 250 exhibitors will be demonstrating the latest camping gear, paddle sports, outdoor clothing, scuba diving, and adventure travel destinations! As an added bonus, you'll enjoy over 40 adventure presentations curated by seasoned guides and tourism boards. Soak up all their knowledge and use it to plan your next exhilarating escapade!
This can't-miss instructional event will be split up into seven zones where you can learn a slew of different tips and tricks. Health & Wellness, for example, will teach you how to get fit with the newest in healthy eating, nutrition, and exercise. At Paddlers' Paradise, you'll find canoe, kayak, and SUP demos in an interactive 30′ x 50′ pool, where experts will be teaching new maneuvers and techniques for safety and fun!
Listen to seminars from trusted guides with extraordinary stories, catch special guest appearances, and so much more. These inspiring adventure talks run the gamut from expeditions in Antarctica and travelling from Dubrovnik to Budapest, to photographing South American wildlife and exploring the Northwest Territories. If these pros don't motivate you to leave your comfort zone and see everything that our phenomenal world has to offer, then I don't know what will.
For newbies eager to learn or aficionados wanting to brush up, the Eco-Dive Dive Tank will demonstrate the basic principles of scuba diving, such as buoyancy, breathing, and equipment.
Two days of pure fun and awesome interaction, the Outdoor Adventure Show is informative goodness for the whole family. Tackle the indoor Arbraska Obstacle Course for free. See how well you fare at the unique treetop challenge games. Your inner Tarzan is sure to peek through as you climb across balance logs and swing from monkey cables.
Rally the troops and make sure your kids get their official Junior Outdoor Adventurer passport. Watch them have a blast as they compete in the show-wide scavenger hunt for the chance to win great prizes!
The Outdoor Adventure Show is the ultimate hub to buy the best new hiking gear and camping gear - at special show prices, too! This is also the ideal spot to go one-on-one with experienced guides that can help you plan your next excursion, an exciting weekend getaway, or the once-in-a-lifetime voyage you've been wanting to finally check off your bucket list.
