5 Lazy Rivers In Quebec You & You Friends Can Float Down This Summer

Quebec is truly a province that offers so many options to its people. From the hustle of cities to the quaint and quiet countryside lakes, plus the abundance of natural beauty that surrounds us in so many areas, our province is fantastic in a myriad of ways. And, one of my favourite things about it has to be the various lazy rivers in Quebec.

With so many fun activities to be done throughout the province, it can be tough to choose what to do during the months of summer.

But, enjoying a lazy river is always at the top of my list — year after year.

There's something so cool about being able to float through the water on a tube with your friends that makes you forget about your problems.

All you have to do is simply sit back and enjoy the views surrounding you.

Certain locations offer tubes for rent, while others require you to bring your own.
