Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville

Our team's favourites

A few kilometres away from Montreal, right in the middle of the majestic Saint-Lawrence River, five closely knit Islands make up the Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville, a highly representative sample of the Saint-Lawrence Lowlands’ natural heritage. Hikers, picnickers, cyclists, canoeists, kayakers and campers come over to get away from it all. In winter, the park offers hikers, snowshoers, cross-country skiers and fatbike enthusiasts wonderful snowy scenery, and an atmosphere beyond just peaceful.

The Park in Winter

Winter is a splendid season for outdoor activities! During winter, the park offers cross-country skiing, winter hiking, snowshoeing, fatbike riding and snow scooter (kick-sled) enthusiasts a lot to revel in, and all the relevant equipment can be rented. In addition, the new bridge opens up untapped snowy landscape exploration horizons on the other islands.
