Extraordinary experiences await at Québec’s national parks! Together, these immense protected spaces cover the gamut of Québec’s varied geography. Each park has its own unique personality owing to its location, flora and fauna; all of them boast an astounding diversity of natural sites, recreational possibilities and scenery.
The parks at a glance
From Abitibi-Témiscamingue to the extreme tip of the Gaspé peninsula, parks can be found in every corner of Québec. Many are within easy reach of the province’s urban centres. Most are under the jurisdiction of the Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (Sépaq). Forillon, La Mauricie and the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve are run by Parks Canada, while the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park is managed jointly by the two organizations.
At 1,500 km2 (932 sq. mi.), Parc national du Mont-Tremblant is the largest of Québec’s parks. The smallest, Miguasha in Gaspésie, barely measures 87 ha. Parc national des Pingualuit, located in Nunavik, is Québec’s first northern park.
