Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie

Québec's national park Region:Charlevoix City : Saint-Aimé-des-Lacs

Area: 224.7 km²
The Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie is one of Québec's most beautiful natural monuments. It was named after a series of valleys cut deep into a range of high mountains. Mounts Élie and Jérémie and Montagne des Érables dominate Lac Noir, Ruisseau du Pont, and the Malbaie and Martres river valleys. Steep slopes, beautiful natural surroundings, and the unusual course of Rivière Malbaie make this site unique in Eastern Canada.
This backcountry marvel in the heart of the Charlevoix World Biosphere Reserve can be reached via the picturesque village of Saint-Aimé-des-Lacs.
