Québec national parks are officially recognized protected areas. Parcs Québec ensures that the facilities used to enjoy its parks (discovery and service centres, trails, campgrounds, etc.) take into account environmentally sensitive areas or that they minimize their environmental impact. Therefore, discovery activities, hiking, canoeing and camping are the preferred ways to discover and enjoy the parks. And you can explore these exquisite protected areas year-round!  



The mission of Parcs Québec is to protect and promote the natural environments of Quebec's 43 designated nature areas and sites of outstanding natural beauty. Accordingly, Québec's national parks are managed so as to strike a balance between the conservation of their natural and cultural heritage, and public access for education and recreation purposes.
