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.

Come Chat With Us

Our park’s naturalist rangers love chatting, early evening. Consult the program for these talks and meet up with them in the comfort of the Centre de services du Draveur, or near your campsite. They love sharing their knowledge on an array of topics − from the fauna to the stars, and from the infinitely tiny to the immeasurably big.

Strong nature

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

In winter or summer alike, the William-Hume-Blake Trail starts with a demanding ascent, but the effort is so well worth it! Lookouts L’Écrivain and Des Géants offer a hidden window on the valley; that is where you will understand why this sector is called L’Équerre [or square]. A must-see, its trailhead is on Sentier des Orchidées that can be reached by bicycle or on foot.
