Discover the fascinating Familizoo

This winter, take your family out for a day at Familizoo in Saint-Calixte in the Lanaudière region. On a two-hour outdoor walk, meet all the animals at this refuge – some 400 of them! - from Quebec and Canada and elsewhere (born in captivity). Passionate guides offer you a memorable moment, and one that’s delightfully educational. You’ll have the unique opportunity to closely and carefully observe lions, kangaroos, zebras, tigers, wolves, and many other animals that are endangered or in need of loving care from Familizoo’s qualified staff.

Familizoo is open 7 days a week, all year round, so any reason is a good one to visit: Spring Break, a day when the kids are out of school, a spontaneous adventure, or for a weekend of furry (and feathery and scaley) fun!

Committed to animal health and happiness

Familizoo is a safe and welcoming space for animals who need a human hand – for example, those with injuries, weight, or vision problems. At this shelter, they receive the care they need to help them life their best lives. In fact, Familizoo's mission is to ensure a healthy home for all animal species in their care, as most of them cannot be released back into the wild. Familizoo is also committed to helping the general public learn about the importance of natural resources, especially in terms of animals.

To learn more about its mission, visit this the Familizoo website. Check out the Facebook page for the latest on what’s happening, discover interesting animal facts, and learn about how the Familizoo team looks after its animal guests.

Stay on site for a wild time!

Why not rent a cottage for a weekend, a few days, or even a whole week at Complexe Atlantide? You’ll have access to the Familizoo during your entire stay, and also get to enjoy plenty of outdoor activities, like fatbiking and snowshoeing. Need to warm up? There’s indoor play modules and arcades for everyone to enjoy!

For rates and options, visit the cottage rental site. Have fun in the snow and... make some animal friends!
