    Parc de la Jacques Cartier

    If you've had enough of man-made attractions and are hankering to see some of the wilderness stowed away in the expanses of Québec province, put aside some time to visit one or more of the parks within a one-to-two-hour road trip of the capital. The largest, 40km (25mi) north of Québec City, is the Parc de la Jacques Cartier, where canoeing, mountain biking, hiking, camping and cross-country skiing are all ardently pursued. Parc du Mont Ste Anne, 50km (31mi) east of town, has several hundred kilometres of cross-country skiing or hiking trails (depending on the season), while Réserve National de Faune Cap Tourmente, a further 15km (9mi) east, is a bird sanctuary that's particularly popular with snow geese.

    The Parc de la Jacques-Cartier is 40 minutes form Quebec city, but it's vast and beautifull forests, rivers, valleys and hills make it a must for nature lovers.

    A 40 minutes de la ville de Québec, le parc de la Jacques-Cartier, avec ces vallées, colines et rivieres en font une place a voir pour les amant de la nature

    It's a SEPAQ parc (governing board for provincial parcs in Quebec) so you can have more details on


    Entry fee is 3.50 for adults and 1.50 for kids..it's based on honor, inspectors are on the trails. Please pay and help us keep this area clean and well maintained!

    This is a provincial campground just outside Quebec City. It's Parc Jacques Cartier. The view was just breathtaking! The accomodation is VERY basic, and it is also equiped for rafting, kayaking and canoeing.
