How would you like to discover remarkable
species of animals with family this summer? Then head up to the Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien, where the animals enjoy the freedom of
vast natural habitats and where humans can get up close to nature in
a real and harmonious way. Located in the region of
Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, the Zoo has redesigned its space to create
a safe, one-way path, and welcomes visitors every day until
September 7, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Explore the pedestrian trails (4.5 km/2.8
mi. in total) and seven distinct sectors as you come upon the
animals living in their natural habitat. Hop on the popular train
ride (7 km/4.3 mi.) that takes you to wide-open spaces at the heart
of the Nature Trail Park, where the proximity with the animals is
remarkable. Black bears, caribou, packs of wolves, bison, moose,
elk, grizzly bears and many other species can be seen roaming about.
A wondrous sight to behold!
During your visit, you’ll discover a
multitude of species from the Boreal region and from the planet’s
coldest areas. See the two adorable red pandas, the sweet Japanese
macaques, the majestic felines, not to mention the expressive
geladas, a primate that can be seen in Canada only at this Zoo.
You’ll also love the recent, impressive habitat of the magnificent
polar bears. If you need a refreshing break during your visit, the
water game area is ideal for cooling down. Kids and parents are sure
to appreciate this feature, a welcome addition in the summer.
