Parc national des Hautes‑Gorges-de-la-Rivière‑Malbaie
Our team's favourites
Discover a dizzying combination of valleys deeply sculpted by glaciers in a setting of high mountains. The important differences of altitude between the mountains, the beauty of the landscapes and the particular right-angled layout of the Malbaie river will be imprinted on your imagination. To explore in any season.
On a wintry air!
When the river turns black and white, it is a genuine winter wonderland for snow sports lovers. A heavenly playground for skating, sliding, fatbiking, skiing or hiking! Here, time comes to a standstill – for real!
Everything to please
Trail Le Riverain is a real charmer! Its 10.8 km appeal to fans of longer distances but it attracts many more via its multiple trailheads. Its majestic forests, breathtaking viewpoints and quietude are truly delightful.
Tightly entwined forests
On this guided tour, discover our forests and their lively panoply of fascinating interactions. The territory to be explored can only be reached with a naturalist guide, and together you will discover rich ecosystems and their native species.
Enclaved between tall, sheer rock faces, Rivière Malbaie can be moody. A mirror that reflects the sky, untamed on days of high wind, it is ever-changing. Always alive with the history of bygone log drivers, today it invites nature lovers to live moments of pure adventure or… deep serenity.
To the end of the world
L’Équerre is: another world, 8 km from the Le Draveur Visitors Center by bike, on foot, or by watercraft. Meditate by the waterfall at the end of Chute-du-Ruisseau-Blanc, observe the fauna in Les Orchidées or admire the river, on La Coulée-du-Lac-à-Girard...
Tribute to the author
Short but demanding, the William-Hume-Blake trail amply rewards an adventurer’s efforts! Winter or summer, it reveals hidden vistas of Rivière Malbaie and its 90-degree turn. A must, from its trailhead on Sentier des Orchidées.
Enriching nature experiences.
