Parc de la Jacques Cartier

Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier
Area: 670 km2

Less than 30 minutes from North America's oldest French-speaking city lies Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier. It features a remarkable landscape characterized by contrasts: mountainous uplands fractured by steep-sided valleys. A river winds through the most spectacular of them, the Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier, a trench more than 550 m deep. It is calm in some spots and agitated in others. In the forest where yellow birch rubs shoulders with sugar maples and black spruce, nature inspires peace and respect. In the winter, the grandiose charm of this panorama does not go into hibernation! Dressed in its white mantle, it envelopes the area in the kind of magic that will leave you speechless.

Parc des Grands-Jardins

Parc national des Grands-Jardins
Area: 310 km2

At the beginning of the 20th century, the area was already renowned for its amazing fishing sectors. Impressed by the carpet of lichen and the northern vegetation, which is unusual at this latitude, people who visited the area at the time christened it Grands-Jardins. Today, this sample of the Great Québec North is still a favourite of fishing enthusiasts, as well as hikers, campers and vacationers who appreciate the magical setting of this exceptional national park. It has the privilege of being one of the central areas of the Charlevoix World Biosphere Reserve, a status awarded to the region by UNESCO. The Parc national des Grands-Jardins is accessible through the village of Saint-Urbain.
