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


Des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie national park displays landscapes worthy of the forces of nature that crafted it, and the people who visited it over the years. Landscape shapes of impressive diversity are found here: glacial valleys carving the high plateaux, white waters alternating with still waters and waterfalls and cascades going down the rock walls. Discover it by boat, canoe, kayak and bicycle or on foot.



  • Come and meet a naturalist park keeper aboard the riverboat or rabaska canoe, for an evening chat or planned activities, and he’ll introduce you to the park in his own way. Or pick up a self-guided tour guide to explore the Malbaie River at your own pace. Guaranteed fun!

  • Climbing is allowed on two rock walls, the Acropole des Draveurs and that of the gates to hell. This second rock wall is located between the Acropole and the Cran des Érables.

  • Whether a beginner or experienced, this is a nice way to discover the breathtaking landscapes and the secrets of the valley between the dam of maples and the bracket sector. You can rent a boat for 1 h, a block of 4 hours or an entire day equipment rental center. Guaranteed fun!

  • Discover the enormous potential of the Malbaie River. Ideal place to learn about fishing with family or friends, wading or boat. Black Lake, meanwhile, allows you to tease the fish in an exceptional environment rowboat. Brook trout and unforgettable sensations featured therein.

  • Discover the remarkable history, fauna and geological features of the Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie with a park warden on board Le Menaud riverboat (48 passengers). Navigate between the steepest rock cliffs east of the Canadian Rockies.
