13 February 2020

Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu, in partnership with Projet Vertical, a Quebec-based company with existing operations at Canyon Sainte-Anne, announces the opening on February 8th of a Via Ferrata, a new activity that will be available on the hotel’s grounds.

The Via Ferrata « La Charlevoix » is an outdoors secured climbing route built along 500 meters of a rock wall and perched 30 meters above the railroad facing the St. Lawrence River.  With a duration of 3 hours including a 15-minute walk to access the departure point, this exciting yet safe adventure will be available all-year round for participants aged 8 years and above.  Whether for beginners or advanced, couples, families, leisure or corporate groups on a team building outing, participants are required to climb on rock walls, cross over obstacles and vertiginous wooden sleepers. In the winter, participants can watch ice drifts while in the summer, observe marine wildlife from a distance. This winter, “La Charlevoix” will be open until March 22 with two guided departures per day, 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. To learn more or to make a reservation, visit
