In brief

A Biosphere Reserve, Charlevoix boasts not one but two national parks. In the parc national des Grands-Jardins or in the parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie, open your arms and hug the immensity! Take small steps on the hiking trails or the via ferrata or paddle with gusto on our wild lakes and rivers, this is the best place to reach the summits. Is it a wonder that there are so many ready-to-camp formulas available to enjoy the starry skies!

  • Riverboat Discovery Cruise

    Visit the Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie national park during an approximatly 1 and a half hour cruise aboard Le Menaud, a riverboat that holds 48 passengers. The rear deck is specially designed to make it easy for you to take photographs. The captain and park warden-naturalist will be more than happy to share their little corner of paradise with you.
