My two friends and I were met by our guide Daniel and one of the greatest Great Danes you will ever see. He stayed at the ranch.
For about two hours we three followed Daniel and another guide through logging roads, the forest, and sand pits. We communicated via walkie-talkie.
For about $150 US, the three of us had our own Land Rover and each had the chance to drive over logs and stones, through mud, and - most importantly - down a sand pit.
Before Daniel took his Land Rover over the edge of the sand pit, he told us over the walkie-talkie, "Give me one minute to get to the bottom and you guys follow." Well, we were a little intimidated when our last sight was the tail end of Daniel's Land Rover almost 90 degrees to the earth. But we persevered and all are glad we did. It is quite a rush heading down an embankment!
And we did it again and again so all three had an opportunity to drive.
For the scenery, the adrenaline, and the experience, I would definitely recommend taking a break from Montreal to enjoy this great adventure!
