Jacques-Cartier Nord-Ouest river - Jacques-Cartier Nord-Ouest is a mission. Definitely one of the sickest place we've seen tho. This river is the main tributary of the Jacques-Cartier. It is known to be the big brother of the Taureau. To paddle continuous class IV-V (full of sieves & undercuts) in that huge canyon for a whole day is pretty intimidating but an incredible feeling. The video includes some clues to reach the canyon for the next groups who would like to run this section.

Ste-Anne Doubles Chutes - GoPro quicky - Upper Ste-Anne is one the best run you can find around. Many nice drops and technical rapids in a beautiful mandatory canyon with only 1 portage. A pretty stacked steep 2km..

Cassian River - The Cassian river is a 9.5km section with a 4% drop profile. It is definitely one of the best creek you can find around Quebec. When you make the first stroke on Cassian Lake, you know you're about to run approximately 60 quality Class IV-V rapids. The first kilometers are the steepest of the run. Then, you enter in an awesome shiny granite ''slides section'' to finally paddle the last kilometers stretch of endless class IV-IV+ rapids to end up in the Jacques-Cartier river. It is a drop & pool section most of the time. You'll see only a dozen of rapid out of many other good ones we just don't take enough time to record. Unfortunately, the access is private and you technically need an authorization to make your way to the lake. This video compiles 3 years of footage; this is why river level, gear and image quality varies. La rivière Cassian est une section de 9.5km avec une pente de 4% qui s'étale sur une soixantaine de rapides de classe IV à V entrecoupés de RII-III. Définitivement le coup de coeur de tous ceux qui y mettent les pieds. Cependant, l'accès est privé et il est nécessaire d'avoir l'accord pour le droit de passage. Un paysage magnifique qui vous offrira des rapides de qualité. Les premiers kilomètres contiennent les rapides les plus imposants qui laissent ensuite place à des ''slides'' à n'en plus finir sur un granite étincelant. Pour terminer avec le dessert; d'innombrables rapides de classe IV-IV+ qui s'enchaînent rapidement pendant environ 1 heure pour finalement déboucher dans la rivière Jacques-Cartier. Ce vidéo compile 3 années de footage. C'est pourquoi le niveau de la rivière, l'équipement des kayakistes et la qualité de l'image varie. Finalement, vous ne verrez qu'une douzaine de rapides dans ce vidéo puisque nous rarement le temps de filmer beaucoup sur cette section, mais sachez qu'il y a une panoplie d'autres magnifiques rapides que vous ne voyez pas dans dans ces images.
