Parks that take you back to nature

From Abitibi-Témiscamingue to the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, Québec has no less than 28 nature reserves. Known for their exceptionally rich flora and fauna, Québec's national parks delight visitors in search of adventure or serenity. A number of these parks have an outstanding reputation, including l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé National Park in the Gaspésie, nesting ground to an impressive colony of gannets; the SaguenaySaint-Laurent Marine Park, at the majestic confluence of river and fjord; and the Miguasha National Park, famous for its fossils, a member of the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List.

Loiselle, SépaqOpening on June 21, 2013, the latest addition to the national parks network is the Lac-Témiscouata National Park, which will become the second largest park in Québec south of the St. Lawrence River, after Gaspésie. With an area of 175 km², the new park will be a prime ecotourism destination. Its large concentration of archaeological sites reflects the richness of the area.

Each of these protected zones has a distinctive face, encouraging vistors to experience the wonder of exploring these natural treasures.
