Our Founder’s love story with Quebec dates to 2011 when Ludovic Lainé began traveling above the 49th parallel and discovered the northern region’s unique geological attributes, ecosystems, fauna and flora, history and cultures. We have since grown deep roots in Quebec where, in 2016, Ludovic was invited to co-found and develop a collection of several large-scale ecotourism territories located in the Gulf of Saint-Lawrence, Northern and Eastern Quebec.
Today, Deneb invites you to discover these magnificent territories, spread over a geographical area as large as England, through immersive journeys that include nature observation, self-sufficiency off-the-grid living, hard and soft adventures, and well-being.
We are gradually developing a range of original experiences inspired by the nomadic lifestyle of the First Nations of Quebec and the epic of the Voyageurs of the fur trade or “coureurs des bois”. These experiences offer our guests the possibility to discover the landscapes, history and culture of local communities, in the Nunavik tundra, the Minganie region, and the Lower Saint-Lawrence region.
Aligned with our values, our journeys are designed, with a perspective of socio-economic vitalization, environmental sustainability, heritage conservation, and vocational training for and with the local communities of each host regions: The North Coasters, Innu, Inuit, and Maliseet communities. Traveling with us is also taking a step to contribute to a much-hoped reconciliation of these very diverse communities around a shared territory and vision.
