Referred to as one of the "tourist wonders" of the Eastern Townships, Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook is home to the famous gorge, above which the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America stretches and hangs 50 metres in the air. While this is certainly, in itself, one of the park's spectacular attractions, there are also plenty of activities that enhance the experience.

Foresta Lumina, an illuminated nighttime trail

Located in the heart of the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook, Foresta Lumina is a 2.6-kilometre multimedia trail to explore as soon as night falls. Celebrate the 10th season of this popular attraction by discovering the trail, which is enhanced every year, where nature blends with technology to transport you into a magical universe inspired by the region's imagination and heritage and Quebec’s forest mythology. You're sure to encounter the fantastic creatures that inhabit the Coaticook Gorge: forest spirits, devils and fairies. Fairies are said to listen to the wishes of those who let themselves be carried away by the mysteries of the forest. What will yours be?

Acoatica, an underwater immersive adventure

Combining technology, the outdoors and fishing, Acoatica is a huge indoor and outdoor video game –a one-of-a-kind in Quebec– where participants must dive (without getting wet!) into immersive, interactive adventures to ensure the survival of endangered fish species. The aim: to create the largest school of fish by collecting the most points in the various challenges. In an "underwater" atmosphere, young and old alike will have the opportunity to learn more about the obstacles to fish survival by fending off dangers such as overfishing and pollution. This activity takes place at Parc Découverte Nature, located just a few kilometres from Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook. Feel like trying it out?
