Quebec occupies a vast territory rich in natural sites and many treasures that ask only to be discovered. During your vacation, set aside several days in the outdoors to survey one of the many Parks Canada trails and to do some camping there. Complete your vacation by visiting one of the national historic sites and journey into the past.
Live what is real
In Quebec, Parks Canada has around 30 natural and historic sites. There are historic sites and national parks in 15 different tourist regions that are filled with activities that will satisfy both those who love nature and those who love history.
Into the heart of nature
Canada's national parks offer a great number of activities. As well as providing trails for hiking and biking, these vast natural territories let you discover all kinds of plants and animals, go swimming, or enjoy a trip in a canoe or kayak. By yourself, with your family, or with a group, you will never be bored.
Camping is without doubt the perfect activity to completely immerse yourself in nature. Camping enthusiasts have their pick of primitive or fully serviced sites. Those who want to travel light and in comfort will prefer the ready-to-camp style. These campers will enjoy the all equipped locations at La Mauricie National Park with its oTENTik tents, or at the Forillon National Park with its yurts. Whichever you choose, you'll have a great time!
