For a rustic experience

Parc national du Bic

Eight yurts are located in the Île-aux-Amours sector, between 100 m and 450 m from the parking lot. Three yurts are also available in the Tombolo sector. In the heart of the snow-covered forest, the yurt gives us the impression of being elsewhere, as it was traditionally used by nomadic peoples living on the steppes of Central Asia. It's a great place to unwind from everyday stress and enjoy the great outdoors. You can enjoy the magnificent sunsets that are unique to the region, cross-country ski or hike for miles, and come back to warm up in a unique atmosphere!
