Horse Back Riding in Quebec!!!

April 4th, 2015 | Posted by buoutingclub in Trips

Do you love horses? The outdoors? Or just having a great time? Then come with BUOC to Quebec Canada on April 24th-26th to do just that!

We will depart Boston in the evening on Friday April 24th and travel to¬†Auberge D’Andromede, a quint French Canadian inn nestled in the hills of Courcelles Quebec, where we will be lodging Friday night. Saturday, after enjoying an authentic French meal prepared for us by the inn keepers, we will set out on an all day horse¬†back ride through the beautiful wilderness of Quebec. Saturday night we will camp out and spend Sunday hiking through the lush wilderness. We will then return to Boston Sunday evening.

This is a unique trip because it allows students to step out of urban Boston, and immerse themselves in French Canadian culture while giving them the opportunity to experience the wilderness on horse back and on foot!
