Voyageur Houseboats  
Jérémy Faure and his father Pierre Faure launched a tourist and eco-responsible project to rent houseboats in the community of Pinawa. A unique tourism experience in Manitoba. The boats can host a family of four and allow you to spend between two days to a week of vacation on the water. The boats are completely autonomous, fully equipped while being eco-responsible. In addition, several family activity packages are offered to allow families to enjoy Pinawa and its nature to the fullest. Each person receives for their trip their own kayak to be able to explore the river and the surrounding area. The activities include river tubing, access to a floating water park, or golfing on one of the most beautiful golf courses in Manitoba. There's even a captain-led cruise to take you to the hidden corners of the river at different times of the day to enjoy the sunset.
