With remarkable new features, the Zoo sauvage de St-Félicien is this summer’s must-go-to destination. Not only can you see over 1,000 animals, including 75 Boreal species, but you can also turn your simple visit into a memorable stay thanks to many activities available on site: a multisensory film, a wide and inspiring hiking trail, a thrilling 60-minute ride in a caged train, water games, a pond of carps you can touch, a small farm and plenty of fascinating displays you won’t want to miss. This summer, head up to Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean!
The Zoo sauvage has a big surprise for you all summer long! After renovations that began last winter as part of a seven-year 30-million-dollar investment, the nursery welcomed its first residents. And it is accessible to visitors! Whether the little ones are orphans, have been rejected by their mothers or are simply newborns, these cute and endearing darlings will receive the care they need while visitors look on. In addition to being able to see them, you will get to feed some of these animals.
The Zoo sauvage will soon reveal a part of its activities that is usually inaccessible to the public to offer a unique experience: the operating room. A small veterinary clinic will be set up just above the nursery, and from the other side of a glass wall, you’ll get to see certain medical operations being carried out on the animals. Fascinating!
From July 14 to September 4, 2016, explore the Anima Lumina immersive trail, totalling 1.5 km (0.9 mi.) and depicting animal life through a series of virtual images. Thanks to cutting-edge multimedia technology, visitors are wrapped up in visuals and sound effects as soon as night falls. On this circuit respecting the zoo's flora and fauna, nature takes on an air of symphonic magic.
