Starting December 26, you are
invited to a very special winter activity in the Eastern
Townships. The Granby Zoo
opens its doors once again this winter
so that visitors can admire these exotic animals in a
magnificent snow-covered setting. Themed pavilions, an
interactive rally, entertainment and lots of wonder await. If
the weather allows it, bring your skates along or trade in a
stroller for a toboggan – it’ll be just the thing to add an
extra touch of magic to your extraordinary day.

pavilions, or on the ice rink
During your visit, you might have to
take a break and warm up even if you’ve got the right outdoor
wear. Not to worry! Come in from the cold and explore the Hippo
River, the Temple, the Cavern, the Discovery Hut, the Elephants’
and Giraffes’ Pavilion, the Afrika Pavilion and the South-Pacific
Odyssey Aquarium. These indoor pavilions are open all winter.
Another way to warm up is by going for
a skate on the 360-square-metre refrigerated ice rink in the
middle of the zoo.

a rally for those who are curious by nature
Did you know that the Granby Zoo is a
sanctuary for many endangered species? The staff at the zoo is
considerably involved in the conservation of biodiversity,
research in veterinary medicine and the well-being of animals in
captivity. Don’t miss the chance to see one or many of the 15
themed presentations held each day at the zoo! The zookeepers and
biologists will have lots of fascinating facts to tell you about
the animals, whose welfare is their top priority.
While you’re there, have a go at the
interactive winter rally – you’ll get to test your knowledge of
how animals adapt to the cold. The challenges are sure to awaken
your five senses!
