From the legends of the explorer Jean Cadieux to adventures with top rafting companies, Ile-du-Grand-Calumet (Calumet Island) has always been famous for its world class rapids. “Calumet Fever” was a term used by the log drivers of the day in reference to their fear of crossing the treacherous rapids. Today the island is an ideal playground for whitewater enthusiasts.
The wealth of bird species that have settled on the island’s farmland also makes it very popular with amateur birders.
Agriculture is the major player in the island’s economy and is also home to one of the two largest hop yards in the Pontiac.
