Jacob Racine

Travel Guide


A 2003 graduate of Cégep St-Laurent in adventure tourism, I divide my life between my three passions: my family, guiding and adventures in the Far North. I've had the pleasure of living in the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula's magnificent landscapes, traveling to some of Europe's most incredible corners, and having crossed paths with polar bears. I love people, and that's what I like most about being a guide. Sharing, exchanging and learning from each other about the places and cultures of the different places we visit. For me, biking and skiing are the two best ways to travel and discover a region, because they allow you to experience adventure at human level, at a pace that facilitates encounters and exchanges.

The earth teaches us more about ourselves than all the books. Because it resists us. Man discovers himself when he confronts the obstacle.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
