Based in Alma, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and in business since 2008, Equinox Aventure was first launched as an outdoor equipment rental company in 1991. At the time, the company was called Samaho. Indeed, it all started on the shores of Lac-Saint-Jean when 3 young men with an entrepreneurial spirit were renting kayaks, outdoor equipment and a few bicycles. Over the seasons, locals and vacationers had more and more expectations and requests for equipment rentals. This is how the company let their first cyclist go around Lac-Saint-Jean, a Quebecer from Montreal to whom the owner carefully planned the route, offered equipment rental, offered luggage transport and even went as far as to set up the tent and cook the meal for him each evening. That's what we call service! At the end of that journey, Equinox Aventure had a very first satisfied customer.
Since 2015, Equinox aventure has now focused on turnkey self-guided formulas. The company is now an operator of four-season tourism services related to the outdoors and gentle adventures. Our team uses the best playgrounds in the region to develop an interesting and adapted tourist offer, regardless of the season. We have developed various partnerships with the Complexe Touristique la Dam en Terre, the Center du Sport Lac-Saint-Jean, the Auberge des Îles, the Blueberry Trail, the Véloroute du Fjord du Saguenay, the Pointe-Taillon National Park, Alma Tourism, etc. We are affiliated with Tourisme Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and have a presence in many consumer shows, including Bike shows in Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and New York.
