Parc de la Jacques-Cartier

Area: 670 km2 Tourist region: Québec city and area

Less than 30 minutes from North America's oldest French-speaking city lies Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier. It features a remarkable landscape characterized by contrasts: mountainous uplands fractured by steep-sided valleys. The Jacques-Cartier river valley presents a spectacular 550-metre-deep trench through which a multi-faceted river winds. Park's dense forest, where yellow birch, sugar maples and black spruce co-mingle, nature inspires peace and respect. In the winter, discovering the magic of this site on snowshoes will leave you speechless.
