This national park gives visitors the opportunity to explore an exceptional mountain environment, the habitat of a herd of woodland caribou, the last representatives of this species south of the St. Lawrence River. A mecca for hikers, it holds a diversity of trails, including the one on Mont Jacques-Cartier, Québec’s second highest summit. If you’re looking for an outing on the water, Lac Cascapedia beckons. And in winter, skiing and snowshoeing hold pride of place. Extend your stay at a campground, shelter, cottage or at the Auberge Gîte du Mont-Albert.
