Le Riverain du parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie

About

Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie was named after a series of valleys cut deep into a range of high mountains.The Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie are among the highest rock faces East of the Rockies! Steep slopes, beautiful natural surroundings, and the unusual course of Rivière Malbaie make this an exceptional site. Come and take a voyage into the heart of the Land of Menaud, where time stops but the spectacle goes on and on. This national park has the privilege of being one of the core zones of the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve.
