Frequently Asked Questions
After a two hour drive, we got to our destination and immediately jumped on the ATVs. I had never done this before so I was equal parts excited and nervous. I was the passenger which allowed me to take amazing photos and videos as we drove through the sand dunes, on the beach and through town! Super fun. Then we headed out on a rickety boat on Lac Rose. Unfortunately, due to high winds, the waters were rough and there was no pink. :( But I'm glad we made the attempt! Then we had a quick bite of delicious food and headed home.
