Desire to Discover
EMPOWERING WOMEN IN THE WILDERNESS.
Creating empowering and challenging opportunities primarily for women through multi-day canoe trips.
MORE THAN A CANOE TRIP
We use canoe tripping as a vessel to get out into the wilderness and take time to challenge ourselves, reflect and create meaningful connections. We want these trips to be a safe place for you to push your limits, and learn some valuable outdoor skills.
The magic of a trip does not come from the photos or the clothes on your back. At D2D, we know that it comes from your willingness to be vulnerable, to be brave, and most importantly, to wake up in the morning and say, “I can.”

We recognize the courage it takes to sign up for a wilderness learning experience. Join us on a local Quebec waterway for a canoe trip, and together, let’s seek empowerment through challenges.
Let’s remember how great a deep belly laugh feels, how to make your muscles burn, and remind your lungs how much they like the taste of fresh air.
Desire to Discover will offer trips following the public health guidelines. It is extremely important for us to ensure the safety of our participants, community and staff. It is too early at the moment for us to have a precise idea of the measures and precautions we will be taking on our 2021 summer trips. We will stay in contact and send you the information as soon as we know. We will be in contact with Aventure Écotourisme Québec and public health to offer high standards of quality and security for our summer trips.
