Park Experience

Walk Over Billions of Years, Where the Waters Part

Exotic and accessible, Parc national d'Aiguebelle is an exceptional protected area that offers tranquility and a place for contemplation. See traces of the glaciers, lava and rocks that date back as far as 2.7 billion years. If you feel like it, you can also cross a 64-metre footbridge, suspended 22 metres above Lac La Haie. Scan the vast horizon from the top of a fire warden’s tower or climb down a cliff on a spiral staircase. Whether you’re on foot, in a rabaska canoe, a canoe or a kayak in the summer, or on backcountry skis or snowshoes in the winter, come discover this natural jewel in the heart of Abitibi. Visit La Castorière trail, which won the Kéroul special mention in 2002. Aiguebelle is a rendezvous wildlife watchers won’t want to miss..

Discover the Park Through Interpretation

Parc national d'Aiguebelle has the potential to inspire wonder! And the best way is to participate in our discovery activities (in French only). Through the interpretation of natural and cultural heritage, you’ll learn more about the park and the importance of protecting it.

Among the treasures we hope to share are the area’s geological and geomorphological features. During the Rabaska Odyssey, you’ll discover surprising phenomena. The park is part of the region’s heritage, and you’ll hear all about its history during the The Way It Was activity.

To guide us in developing our discovery activities, all the parks have an education plan.

The Divide Circuit

Lake

Gliding through the water, discover the most spectacular elements of Aiguebelle scenery on a new circuit suggested by the park team! After a 10-minute hike on Les Paysages trail, head to Lac Sault for a canoeing adventure and soak up the peacefulness of the area. At the end of the lake, a 20-minute hike will lead you to Lac La Haie. Then you will cross the drainage divide that separates the St. Lawrence River watershed from that of James Bay. This is where the word “Abbittibbi” takes on its meaning. In Algonquin it means “Where the waters divide”. Continue your adventure by canoe and explore the impressive Lac La Haie fault. You will see traces of glaciers, lava and rocks that are 2.7 billion years old.
