Parc Safari has always been a hit with families. Its main attraction is a 5-km driving safari featuring animals from three continents. Visitors can also enjoy exploring eight themed sections, including the felines' tunnel where lions can be observed at close range, and head to the water park on hot days. There is so much to do that you'll no doubt be tempted to stay on site! Enter the "Coolbox" mini-home: a great way to make the most of your visit by staying a little longer. Other features include presentations of birds of prey, nighttime visits and even the chance to have breakfast with the lions!

An eco-friendly way to explore the Richelieu River 

Between Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Noyan, Alo Richelieu offers a circuit that will allow you to discover the region in an unusual, safe, innovative and responsible way. Become a captain for a day by renting your own electric boat or go for kayaking, paddleboarding or electric surfing. Fishing trips, picnics on Île-aux-Noix and scuba diving to discover old ship wrecks are other activities to choose from. And if you're looking for something else that's original, try the floating hotel and let the river rock you to sleep!
