Struck by wanderlust after reading J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy novels, Joe Kowalski decided to kindle his own passion for adventure by exploring the uncharted rapids of the Ottawa River with a group of fellow college students. There they discovered a multi-channel paradise—the six-mile-wide river churned through dozens of islands, jutting rocks, secluded beaches, and gorgeous waterfalls, as well as calmer paddling runs. Their stories and videos attracted guests, spurring the loosely organized group to band together in 1975 to become Wilderness Tours. To date, they have guided more than one million people safely down the river.

Today, the guides spend most of their time on white water rafting day trips, pausing in their runs to lead body-surfing and cliff-jumping adventures at some of the river's calmer spots. A riverside lunch is also provided to refuel paddlers for the second half of their run.The main resort also makes use of the stunning topography and forests that surround the river during rock-climbing, bungee jumping, and mountain biking excursions. The Wilderness Tours Adventure Resort offers luxury accommodations alongside a restaurant and bar.

At the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières, speedy vessels round tracks that line the city streets in 11 races. This year marks the return of the popular NASCAR Canadian Tire showdown and the Firestone Indy Light, which disappeared for the past 13 years to chase its dreams of soap-opera stardom. Fans can watch famous drivers, which have included Jacques Duval, Danica Patrick, and Patrick Carpentier, race through the city streets from general-admission trackside seating for all three days of the Grand Prix, which will summon thrills and horizontal hairdos as the cars whip past. Tickets also grant unlimited enjoyment of access to the event’s paddocks, concerts, fireworks, and a full schedule of family-friendly activities. Or, autophiles can log in for three days of access to the live web stream, which will broadcast practices, qualifying rounds, sit-down interviews with famous engines, and races such as the Formula Tour 1600 and the Spec Racer Ford Pro.

Carved through the tree-lined wetlands near the Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort, Golf Manitou's par-58 course showcases the artistry of architect Darrell Huxham. By design, each hole is a grassy homage to a different legendary golf course—the sand encircling the tenth green, for instance, recalls the Desert Highlands Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the towering pine trees around the third hole mimic North Carolina's legendary Pinehurst. Unlike the thick shag carpet covering other courses' greens, slick bent grass makes for fast putts at almost every hole—including the fourth green's two-tiered tribute to Ballybunion Golf Club in Ireland. Before rounds, golfers can warm up at the driving range, which sports both grass and synthetic hitting bays, or practice putting and chipping on a massive 18-hole, 30,000-square-foot practice green.

Astride their trusty snowmobiles, the knowledgeable guides at Jay Snowmobile Adventures help visiting adventurers conquer the winter landscape during tours of picturesque Vermont snowscapes. One- and two-person tour packages begin at the outfitter’s home base, located 3 miles from the entrance of Jay Peak Resort. From there, groups wind through the wilderness of Jay, Vermont and parts of Westfield for up to two hours, exploring the snowy nooks and frost-covered crannies of Jay State Forest and the nearby countryside. They rarely make the trip alone, though; moose and white-tailed deer often dot the secluded paths, ready to pose for snapshots in their most photogenic outfits.

For motor enthusiasts, few sounds rival the sheer exuberance of an Italian super car spooling up its engine as it careens down the straightaway. At G1Tour, guests can achieve this thrill by slipping into the cockpit of their choice of three iconic super cars. Two Ferraris—a 360 Modena and an F430—twist their tires with 400 and 490 horsepower respectively, with the potential to reach the exact top speed of a cheetah who is driving a Ferrari. If that's not enough muscle, drivers can watch the blood drain from their knuckles as they attempt to contain the furious 552-horsepower Lamborghini Gallardo, who's high-rev plant propels passengers from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.

Cars can swirl around the 1.4-kilometre Sanair's wide tracks and soft turns or race headlong down the ultra-long straightaways of the 2-kilometre Sainte-Croix. Drivers who take on Mont-Tremblant negotiate hairpin turns and corkscrews as they work the pedals around the course's 4.2-kilometre track.
