Life aboard the Le Boreal
Find a special ambiance aboard the Le Boreal, as well as the feeling that you are on board your own yacht.

Whether you want to join other guests in the theatre or games area (Wii™ consoles, etc), or relax on your own in a quiet corner of the library, Le Boréal has been designed to meet the needs of every guest. Fitted with the latest equipment (Kinesis Wall, running machine) and the luxurious Beauty Centre on Le Boréal welcomes you for some unforgettable moments of relaxation and pampering.

Everything has been done to preserve the independence of each guest to suit their personal tastes: lounges for lectures and shows, the spa, but also more intimate spaces such as the library and internet corner. Comfortable cabins, nearly all with private balcony, are available for families either as triples or as communicating cabins. There is also a games area with Wii™ consoles, children’s menus, and baby-sitting service. Just as if you were on a private yacht, your time is your own to do as you please.

Smooth and quiet to provide maximum comfort, Le Boréal has also earned the international “green ship” label for her numerous eco-friendly features (dynamic positioning system to avoid having to drop anchor, waste water treatment on board, reduced fuel consumption, etc).

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
