The Parc national des Grands-Jardins, at the core of the Biosphere Reserve, is a true Charlevoix jewel. The particular flora and fauna found at this altitude make it a unique site. Who would have ever thought it possible to walk through taiga at less than a 90-minute drive from Québec City? That is one of the special features of Les Grands-Jardins. Visitors are amazed by this area reminding them of Northern Québec.
