Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier

Québec's national park Region: Québec City and Area City : Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury

Just 30 minutes from Québec City, this 670-km2 park boasts impressive scenery and the stunning contrast of a vast mountainous plateau cut by deep valleys. It is home to one of Québec’s most spectacular glacial valleys, the Jacques-Cartier valley. In winter, the park’s splendour is transformed into an enchanting wonderland. Explore the park on foot, snowshoes, Nordic skis or off-trail skis. Spend a comfortable night in the heart of nature in a cabin, yurt, or rustic shelter—or try winter camping!
